About

The De Haro Street Community Project began over 10 years ago when residents of the 1300 block of De Haro Street started planting various shrubs and trees on the median in front of their homes to help beautify the block. As time went on, residents organized sporadic cleanup days to remove debris and weeds on the median.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the city began mandating Shelter in Place orders, a core group of neighbors decided that getting together outdoors would foster a greater sense of community and hope. They put in place weekly social distanced meetups to focus on the median, and the beautification project soon flourished and progress became increasingly visible and inspirational.
Improvements took the form of planting an array of drought-tolerant plants and clearing overgrown plants.

Now, this group is more than just a collection of neighbors – they are friends with a common purpose, a greater sense of community, and a unifying desire to keep improving and transforming their street. And in the spirit of being a force for positive change in their community, they are setting in motion a vision for transforming their block into an inspiration for all of the South Side of Potrero Hill!
