Heart of the City
Urban Garden Walk
Saturday, September 13th, 2014
10am – 4pm
Join the UC Master Gardeners of San Mateo and SF for a guided educational walking tour and plant sale in the heart of San Francisco. The UC Master Gardeners and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) are working in partnership to offer the garden walk, which will focus on urban garden techniques for small spaces.
Garden highlights include:
- an entirely self-contained hydroponics garden at Project Open Hand
- community gardens
- a green haven with a 60-foot Redwood tree at the Tenderloin National Forest
- urban water conservation demonstrations;
- hidden gems full of innovative gardening concepts at Organic Mechanics;
- two of TNDC's gardens which distribute free, fresh produce to Tenderloin residents.
The 1.4-mile walk will be approximately one hour in length and begin and end at UC Hastings Snodgrass Plaza (198 McAllister Street), where there will be educational stations showcasing a variety of urban gardening topics as well as a sale of locally grown plants and seeds for fall and winter gardens.
$20 (kids under 12 get in free)
