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
  • two of TNDC's gardens which distribute free, fresh produce to Tenderloin residents
