This tour of mostly private gardens is a fundraiser for the Horticulture and Floristry department of San Francisco City College. Explore beautiful and hidden spaces, learn about what grows here in the sunny southeast corner of San Francisco, enjoy the hospitality of our friendly gardeners, all the while helping SF City College continue to teach and inspire future garden designers and florists.
Each garden is different. A couple of them are postage-stamp sized and are excellent examples of what is possible in a small space. Others demonstrate the power of terracing to capture views and growing areas. Some are examples of native plantings, while others focus primarily on food production. Our tour includes shade-dappled groves and sunny patios and wind caressed hillsides. But, each garden also has something very special: the fingerprints of the gardener or gardeners who keep it.
