In 2014 Kathleen Russell was awarded the Unsung Hero Award.
Kathleen Russell has been gardening at the Fulton and Stanyan corner of Golden Gate Park for many decades. But it isn’t just her garden that’s beautiful. Kathleen greets everyone – from tourist to neighbor to homeless person in need – with love and light. She gives her time and beauty to everyone she meets and she is much beloved in the community.
For more than 40 years, San Francisco Beautiful has been honoring San Franciscans who make special contributions to the unique character and beauty of our City with the Annual Beautification Awards.
