San Francisco Rec and Park’s Urban Agriculture Program provides free materials for the backyard gardener, community gardener, or urban farmer through regularly scheduled Garden Resource Days. These events, held every 6 weeks during the non-winter months, offer compost at every event as well as mulch, seeds, plant starts and composting worms when available. Garden Resource Days are held alternately at Alemany Farm and Golden Gate Park CommUNITY Garden to provide access to as many gardeners citywide as possible. They are a “bring-your-own-bucket” event and amounts are limited.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Garden Resource Days have been suspended due to restrictions on large gatherings. We hope to resume these events in the Spring of 2021. To be notified when new dates are scheduled, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your email address added to our mailing list.
