It Takes a Village to Tend the Presidio

On Saturday September 17, SBTHP hosted about twenty volunteers who signed up to work at nonprofits all over Southern California through United Way’s Day of Caring event.

The volunteers accomplished a tremendous amount of work at the Presidio in four short hours, including whitewashing adobe walls, preparing beds for a winter garden, and making adobe bricks.
