Land Owner Threatening Community Garden in SF
Sun Apr 1 2007 (Updated 04/02/07)
Community Garden Under Threat
A land owner is threatening a community garden at Fulton and Stanyan Streets in San Francisco. The 1,300 sq foot plot is home to a variety of locally grown vegetables and fruit. After three months of building the garden, local residents are trying to save it from the land owner’s threats.

On March 30th, gardeners and supporters gathered to support the garden, which they say has transformed the corner of Stanyan and Fulton from an empty lot full of weeds, trash and dog feces into a vibrant community project. The project, which one gardener is calling it the “Stanyan Street Commons,” was, until recently, an unused lot that residents complained was usually covered in trash. “This garden was put in here by some members of the community,” says Matt, who came out from the Mission district to support the farm, which has been threatened with eviction. “[The gardeners have] had a lot of feedback from the neighbors about how great it is to have some growth here instead of a vacant lot. The city had actually put up a sign saying that it is a blighted lot, that it needed to be cleaned and fixed up, so it seems like [the gardeners] are helping more than hurting, but the landlord got wind of this and just wants it dug out and refuses to talk to anyone about why. ”
