The several dozen community gardens and various green spaces that have sprouted around San Francisco will finally come under a streamlined management.

The Urban Agriculture Program announced by the Recreation and Park Department on Wednesday will coordinate all activities related to urban agriculture, which at its most basic level entails growing food within a city.

More than 36 community gardens the department manages, as well as new urban agriculture resource centers and the application and waitlist processes for new projects, will fall under the responsibility of a forthcoming urban agriculture program coordinator.
