Just about every urban agriculture project in San Francisco was founded (or is currently managed) by a graduate of this three-month urban agriculture training - and you could be next!

JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL SUMMER EVENING IN THE GARDEN
Fall Garden Party | Saturday, September 10th | 4pm - 7pm
$25 admission/Free for children under 10 | All funds support GFE!
We'll be firing up our cobb oven to cook some garden grown pizzas, barbecuing in our outdoor classroom, host live music, beer tasting, and be showing the neighborhood around our 1/2 acre urban oasis.
We have lots of exciting plans for the next year of gardening in San Fransisco - and we need your help! With your support we can bring more kids out to the garden for field trips, buy seeds to grow organic produce, and help with many repairs our garden needs after 25 years of foggy summers. Join us September 10th!
Hope to see in the garden!

LAST MONTH IN THE GARDEN
We're deep into the heart of our summer harvest program. Each week we send a box
of fresh fruits and veggies to G House, a part of Larkin Street Youth Services. This month the box has been packed with pears, green beans, zucchini and a few of these very cute, sunset grown strawberries.
