Urban Farming in San Francisco

28 Aug

A couple of years ago, I was listening to one of the Deconstructing Dinner shows about Urban Farming and one of the guests was discussing the use of city backyards as a way to use the existing green space to grow crops. I have been fascinated with this idea ever since and have been trying to find information about a similar project in San Francisco. Today I stumbled upon Victory Gardens which, according to the website, is a pilot project funded by the City of San Francisco to support the transition of backyard, front yard, window
boxes, rooftops, and unused land into organic food production areas.

It is still early days yet, but I am very interested to see where this goes.

Organic Gardening on NPR

14 Mar

The Bay Area’s local NPR station, KQED, recently did an hour on local organic gardening. It was a good show and provided lots of information and local resources. I suggest a listen!
