The Garden for the Environment


I went to this space called Garden for the Environment. It is located in San Francisco and it is a teaching garden that provides garden skills for those who live in urban areas. It has been around since 1990, when the founders took a 1/2 acre urban vacant lot and turned it into a space where sustainable gardening is taught. It is the only garden in San Francisco that is solely devoted to teaching sustainable gardening:


















The Garden for the Environment is a wonderful place and we need more places like this. I am so happy that I got a chance to visit it.

  32. We have two small teaching gardens in our town. One is to help people with brain injuries learn new skills and have access to fresh food in the summer. The other is at the Community Resource Center. This one offers classes to the public, but is designed to help people with limited incomes or who are homeless. - Margy
