GFE Hits its End-of-Year Fundraising Goal
You did it! We reached our fundraising goal! We are overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled by your generosity - thank you to everyone who donated to our Fall Appeal fundraising campaign. YOU helped us reached our goal, and all our donations were generously matched by our Advisory Board.
2017 is looking to be an exciting year for the garden. We are offering more workshops
than ever before this Spring, and have launched a brand new 6-week course called Dig In!
(more info below).
We know sustainable gardening can change the world - creating habitat for nature, permeable surfaces for groundwater, and real community in a busy and bustling city. We are so grateful to all of you - volunteers, students, visitors and supporters for contributing to our 1/2 acre piece of land.
Happy New Year!
All of us at GFE
Ps. There is still time to donate! We rely on support from individuals to keep our garden open and thriving. Donate today!

LAST MONTH IN THE GARDEN
December is a quiet and non-showy time in the garden. You tend to find beauty in the subtle things - the sculptural way bare fruit tree branches look, and how the grasses are on display, no longer overshadowed by stunning blooms. This time of year we mulch and weed, prune and rest, getting ready for the early spring that hits San Francisco while many parts of our country are still in mid-winter. Amongst all the subtlety is the most intoxicating scent of Meyer lemon blossoms, knocking your back and reminding you that the garden is still very much alive.
