For nine steady years, Jesuit Father Tom Lucas of the University of San Francisco has kept the Jesuit community garden green as green can be--at least for San Francisco. Many students refer to it as the Secret Garden Lucas said, but its really just part of the Jesuit community.
The garden is composed of symmetry, olive and pare trees, open spaces, fountains, fish, compost heaps and the occasional raccoon and red-tailed hawk. The Jesuit community uses this Californian/Mediterranean garden for recollection, relaxation, and good times in the sunshine. Although the garden has English and European stylings, an American Weber BBQ keeps the Jesuits satisfied; as does the view.
