Freeway Turned Urban Permaculture Farm San Francisco California United States

Freeway Turned Urban Permaculture Farm

In 1989, the Loma Prieta earthquake shook down the Central Freeway in San Francisco, along with a good chunk of the city proper. The freeway ramps led to nowhere for nearly 20 subsequent years, their larger abandoned lots providing only a haven for drug use and trash. In 2010, a massive volunteer project supported by the San Francisco Parks Trust began – to create an interim-use urban farm and education center on the former freeway. With the help of over 20,000 volunteers, Hayes Valley Farm blossomed into a thriving permaculture community farm producing a bounty of food, offering classes and workshops, partnering with local community activists and restaurants to increase local food security and environmental awareness and providing a safe, beautiful outdoor space for all to enjoy in the middle of the fair city.

An incredible space to enjoy a picnic, take a workshop on gardening (or bee-keeping!) and enjoy a free outdoor yoga class. No prior garden experience necessary. Just drop in and if you feel like learning and lending a hand, introduce yourself to the farm manager on site.

Check website for visiting (volunteer) days.

**Hayes Valley Farm is open for 2 more weeks, then the space will be turned back to the city for development. Huge resource giveaway! Bring a bucket and stock up!
