Urban Agriculture Resource Centers are a free seasonal service of the SF Rec and Park Urban Agriculture Program. The resource centers will have materials for all levels of urban agriculture (backyard gardener, community gardener, or urban farmer) to pick up supplies, get educational opportunities, and build on the existing informal and formal networks of garden materials and programs. Materials on site are available to any gardener in the city of San Francisco to help green and beautify the city.
To best address as many gardeners citywide as possible, the location of the Resource Center changes. Free compost, soil and mulch are always available for pick up. Bring your own container to put materials in; drive up access will be available as well. There are limited amounts available per person. Thanks to Recology for the compost and Rec and Park for the mulch and soil.
Our next Urban Agriculture Resource Center will be on April 28th from 10am-1pm at Alemany Farm, 700 Alemany BLVD. Compost, mulch and plant starts will be available at this event. Additionally, the Urban Agriculture program will be providing a complementary hand cleaning to help with the maintenance of garden tools (long handled tools and hand tools).
A summer Resource Center will take place on June 9th from 10am-1pm at Golden Gate Park CommUNITY garden, 780 Frederick St. Compost and plant starts will be available at this event.
