Proposals Due December 15 for Demonstration Garden Plots at Golden Gate Park Community Garden

The Recreation and Park Department is now accepting proposals for demonstration garden spaces in the Golden Gate Park CommUNITY Garden, located at Frederick/Arguello Streets!

The Golden Gate Park CommUNITY Garden is a community resource and, as such, preference is given to local organizations serving San Francisco. Qualifying organizations include, but are not limited to: schools, environmental and cultural groups, garden clubs, plant societies and businesses. This is a unique opportunity to showcase your passion in gardening and the environment, as well as the latest garden innovations.

Please click on the link below for program requirements, proposal evaluation criteria and submission instructions.

If you have an idea and some capacity to plan, install and maintain but would like to partner with some volunteers for help maintaining the site, please send an e-mail to by December 1 and we will work to try to match you with support that you can then incorporate into your proposal.
