Gaining Momentum (written 9/07)

Since the founding members started meeting over tea and scones, a lot has been accomplished. The first step toward making the hillside project come alive is to find an organization for fiscal sponsorship. The GNG discovered the SF Parks Trust and hopes to become a Parks Partner. In the coming weeks GNG will apply for the grant funds needed to install an irrigation system that will provide the water for the native plants to cover the hill.

Also, GNG is organizing a SAFE neighborhood watch group. The first meeting with David Chen was held last week. There is another informal meeting with the neighbors to complete the tasks needed to move forward. Please contact Mikki Salas if you would like to learn more about protecting our block.
