San Francisco Garden Registry

February 5, 2009 | By | Comments (3)

I just received my monthly online newsletter from Garden for the Environment (SF’s jewel of a demonstration/educational garden) and got wind of the new San Francisco Garden Registry.

Some of the same folks that dreamed up the Civic Center Victory Garden (namely, artist/garden goddess, Amy Franceschini) have now launched an online “survey of urban food production zones.”

This is too cool.

Wow. It’s brand new and will take time to fill in, but I’ve already found a few gardens in my neighborhood that I never would have known existed. Hopefully people will use the “grower with surplus” feature, and I’ll get to reap some of the benefits.

    your stuff previous to and you are just too great.
    I actually like what you have bought here, really like what you are saying and the best
    way during which you say it. You’re making it enjoyable and you still
    care for to keep it sensible. I can’t wait to read much more from you.

    I am not in the SoCal loop at all, but there is one cool project I learned about some time ago: Fallen Fruit is an organization that maps publicly accessible fruit trees to encourage gleaning.

    Here is their homepage:
    http://www.fallenfruit.org/

    And here is a link to their maps: http://www.fallenfruit.org/maps.html

    Maybe one of the founders would be able to point you to additional programs like that in your area. I’m sure there are plenty of people who would appreciate fresh eggs and tomatoes!

    Let us know what you find out…

    This is an awesome resource. I have my own garden and chickens but sometimes there are just too many eggs and tomoatoes no matter how many neighbors I share them with. What a cool idea.
    Do you know of anything like this in Southern California?
