In 2010, a group of neighbors at Northridge Coop Homes wanted to bring the community together to improve health outcomes. Together, they decided to start a garden.
After visiting other nearby community and school gardens, they began planning. In 2011, the group received a grant from the SF Community Challenge Program that helped them get started. They started working with local youth and began transforming a site with almost no topsoil into a thriving produce garden, orchard and sanctuary.
Since then, the community group has received widespread support and worked with many City agencies, community based organizations, local businesses, and hundreds of volunteers. The garden has employed over 120 youth, young adults and a few elders, and has grown and distributed over 3 tons of produce grown with safe and organic methods.
They encourage you to come by and join them!
