Community Gardens

SF Recreation and Park Department supports and manages the city’s Community Gardens Program. Visit the "Join an Existing Garden" page to locate a site on city-owned land, contact the point person, and apply for membership (the process often involves a waiting list).

 If you’re interested in starting a new community garden, make sure you take key components for success into account, which include space, funding, and interest considerations. Be sure to consider factors such as suitability of potential spaces, funding for startup and operating costs, and membership interest from additional community members.

Other public agencies and private property owners also spearhead community garden sites throughout the city. A collaborative map of community gardens owned by various public and private entities (denoted with pins) and other San Francisco Public Space was created by students at University of San Francisco and is updated periodically.

San Francisco Garden Resource Organization provides a list of San Francisco community gardens as well.
