The Recreation and Park Department supports and manages a program of 35 (and growing!) community gardens on City-owned property, where members can grow produce and ornamental plants for personal use. Gardens range in size from a few hundred square feet to thousands of square feet; some offer individual plots while others have shared plots. Some gardens also offer demonstration gardening or other instructional programming.
Each garden is operated by a group of committed volunteers, and membership fees are often self-imposed to cover common expenses.
Garden plots are in high demand at this green Noe Valley oasis, where beautiful trees border the well-tended beds.
