Project Description:

This project will add sustainability to San Francisco’s only community garden focused on Asian communities/traditions through building garden infrastructure (including more planter boxes, irrigation and rainwater reclamation), and by building capacity through creation of a farm stand program to sell extra produce to local residents. The project supports the Florence Fang Asian Community Gardens goals of repurposing public land for community use, empowering marginalized communities, and promoting relations between different communities of color in San Francisco’s most neglected neighborhood.
