CVP supports Boy Scout's rehabilitation of Golden Gate Village community garden

Community Venture Partners collaborated with Eagle Scout candidate Jesse Keefe of Mill Valley, to assist with his plan to rehabilitate the community garden at the Golden Gate Village public housing apartments in Marin City. Despite the noble efforts of the community the garden had fallen into disrepair and much needed funds were unavailable.


With the blessings of the Marin Housing Authority CVP provided fundraising and logistical support for the effort, working hand in hand with Keefe, Boy Scout Troop 1 of Mill Valley, and the Golden Gate Village Residents Council.


Community Venture Partners wants to acknowledge and thank Ike, the garden's guardian and most devoted custodian, Royce McLemore and the Golden Gate Village Residents Council, those who coordinated and donated the food and drinks for over 50 people during the long weekend, and all the donors, friends and community volunteers who made this project possible.


We also want to thank Golden State Lumber, Martin Brothers Supply, Mill Valley Refuse, Bay Cities Refuse and Goodman's Lumber, whose discounts and donations of materials made the difference. And, last but not least, we want to thank and acknowledge Jesse Keefe and the scouts and scout leaders of Troop 1 of Mill Valley for their tireless community service.
