The Far Out West Community Garden is a community effort dedicated to creating a productive urban farm and outdoor classroom to serve the Outer Sunset neighborhood and its residents.
The garden is in an ideal space for gardening: the surrounding high walls that block salty ocean winds and the garden’s southern facing orientation create an ideal mini-microclimate for gardening. The garden includes water-wise succulent planting, pollinator gardens, and nine raised beds, which are all managed by neighbors and active members.
Far Out West has hosted educational programs for the children of nearby Sunset Youth Services and has featured workshops for curious minds of all ages in a variety of subjects at bimonthly work parties. Once proper infrastructure is in place and the garden is producing surplus food, the group hopes to organize neighborhood soup kitchen days to feed the hungry.
