Gardening in the City

As I was headed to the Friends of the SF Library book sale on Wednesday, I was walking and saw this. I thought it was cool as it this little piece of land in the middle of downtown San Francisco, near the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and across the street from City Hall.
A garden in the shadow of San Francisco City Hall

This land did not have a building on it or was not a parking lot, but was being used as a garden for the community. I think it is very cool and a very worthwhile thing to do. They are just really getting started, but you can see it is going to be a special place:

Got to love them bees
Flowers growing
People working. (I took this pic before I knew that I had to walk around the block to get in)
Some of the garden
I know that they are just getting everything started, hopefully I can make a return trip and see more greenery. I think that we need to use our open space in the cities like this. It beats putting another building on it.


  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this! I just went to see this space yesterday and it looks SO different! A lot of green everywhere, and trees!

  2. Thanks Theresa , Now I know I will have to make a return trip and take some new shots of it. Looking forward to seeing it.


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
