Help make urban farming in San Francisco a reality

February 10, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

One-Block farming might become a lot easier for San Francisco residents should the SF Board of Supervisors pass some vital zoning changes.

Remember Brooke Budner and Caitlyn Galloway of Little City Gardens from the February issue of Sunset? They were #35 in our “Sunset 100” for their bold efforts to call the city out on advocating for healthy food yet making urban farming prohibitively expensive.

Fingers were crossed when we went to press that they would have their time in front of the Board of Supervisors.

Good news: The time is here!

Brooke and Caitlyn, along with the support of the San Francisco Urban Agriculture Alliance, are having the first meeting with the Planning Commission this coming Thursday, February 17th.

Are you an SF voter? There’s still time to sign the petition.

Do you have lunch plans next Thursday? The SFUAA is hoping for a big presence at the meeting. Wear some green, and I’ll meet you there:

Thursday, February 17th 
1:30 PM
City Hall, Room 400
