School Gardens and Urban Farms

Today, San Francisco has many school gardens where students learn about growing food. From strawberries to fava beans, students sample and enjoy the fresh tastes of the plants they have grown.

San Francisco also has many community gardens and urban farms like Alemany Farm and Double Rock Garden. These gardens and farms have fruit orchards and vegetable beds that provide food to local neighborhoods. Volunteers can work on these farms to learn, and help grow food.
