Tenderloin People’s Garden

Located downtown San Francisco in the Tenderloin neighborhood this is a vibrant example of urban growing.

Tenderloin neighbourhood has no grocery store so limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables for its low-income residents. With this is mind, the garden was created by the Tenderloin Neighbourhood Development Corporation to promote the food justice; basic human right of access to fresh foods.

This garden is a vital park of the community which is evident from their thriving crops such as corn, cabbages,  artichokes,  herbs etc. Since the garden was established in 2010, the have since expanded to 4 rooftop locations that produce enough food to donate to 400 families each year; all for free!

What an inspiring little place that looked glorious under blue skies. I must also add how wonderful their wall mural is!

Such amazing work; growing in downtown San Fran in the name of food justice! !!!
