"Get Dirty" with BRIDGEMEN as we work together to design and create a community garden for the Peter Claver Community. First John David and Jimmy will walk us through their design concept, then we'll work together to beautify the living space on the upstairs patio to create a warm and inviting place for residents to rest and enjoy.

To create a lively conducive environment for the patients we will have some of that light rock, less talk music on and really "Get Dirty" planting flowers. Small acts of kindness can make a person's day better, and the ripple effect creates a happier, healthier and more enjoyable San Francisco for everyone.

Our presence at the residential center sends a dominant message to the city and Fillmore District. The center opened in 1985, the program marked one of the earliest attempts by any organization to aggressively serve those sick and dying from HIV/AIDS regardless of financial contributions from the patients.

If your in the giving mood and you would like to present a gift to the project, feel free too bring with you or arrange pick up/drop off prior to the project launch date. Just give the host's a email or phone call. Please don't stress if you do not have bags of dirt laying around on the 10th floor of The Paramount, we would love for you to come anyways.
