H5 Team Volunteers to Help Beautify Golden Gate Park Rose Garden
H5 team gets into the weeds to make the city beautiful.
Twenty-five nature-loving H5’ers volunteered to get “down and dirty” at the Golden Gate Park Rose Garden yesterday, contributing 75 hours of community service to a variety of projects such as weeding, mulching and habitat restoration for park beautification.
“There’s nothing like spending time in nature to put life into perspective,” said Ree Mahabeer, a member of the H5 team. “We had a great time digging in and felt a real sense of accomplishment seeing the changes that were made. It was both gratifying and fun!”
The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department offers numerous, diverse volunteer activities among the city’s more than 225 parks and recreation facilities, providing residents the opportunity to make an invaluable contribution to the city’s culture and habitat. Activities include everything from planting trees in Golden Gate Park, teaching Zumba at a local Rec Center, or painting faces at special events.
H5 thanks the San Francisco Recreation and Parks department for allowing us to help, and to Allen Stone (one of the park supervisors) for accommodating the H5 team!
