Construction wrapped up on the SFUSD Greening Projects this week. Seeing the site cleaned up and ready for the kids to enjoy is exciting and rewarding.
However, this is just the beginning for these projects. BTD's role for these schoolyards was to provide the backbone for the school community's own work of bringing more of the natural world into the play environment. The parents, teachers and students are now working with nonprofits and artists to make this yard a living space. They are going plant trees and shrubs, build vegetable gardens, create natural play elements and take on the stewardship of these spaces so that they thrive for years to come.
