New City Farm and Garden Collective!

Just wanted to let everyone know that The Free Farm, a collective garden project that Produce to the People is helping organize, design, and build in collaboration with a handful of other really amazing community orgs and fantastic volunteers, is up and running! Here's a few pics and more info...

The Free Farm is an urban farm on the corner of Gough and Eddy Streets in San Francisco, CA. Our goal is to grow organic produce, foster garden education, and build community. The food grown is offered to the community for free in an effort to combat hunger, aid health and nutrition, and increase resource sharing and care for one another.

Currently the farm is open to the public on workdays, Saturdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 2pm (closed during heavy rain). Everyone is welcome, there are many tasks for people of all skill levels and physical abilities (please note that the site has limited wheelchair access at this time.)

The Free Farm is organized by a collaboration of San Francisco food justice, community gardening and poverty response organizations in conjunction with the hard work of many dedicated volunteers. The land is generously donated by St. Paulus Lutheran Church.

While our primary focus is on the growth and distribution of local organic produce, we are also deeply invested in creating a model of successful community partnership. Please find out more about our partners below.
