QGI operates in the spirit of community building learned from Annette Smith and Karl Paige, and maintains and programs destination point community gathering spaces, gardens, and public art projects. The community-emergent, grassroots group meets monthly, regularly hosts volunteer events and visitor tours, maintains a community communications network, grows a lots of food, and provides an entry-point for allies to reach the grassroots community. QGI is non-political, focuses on strengths, honors history and culture, and represents the scrappy do-it-yourself character of a great neighborhood becoming greater.
