SF crops and Little City Gardens: by J

I spent a lovely and exceptionally chilly night at Little City Gardens with Farm School.

We were there to experience what urban agriculture can look like.

Brooke Budner and Caitlyn Galloway, began their garden with the intention of finding out if urban agriculture was really sustainable, economically, physically and socially.

Brooke has since moved on to more rural pastures, but Caitlyn continues to work at answering these questions, and truly breaking ground.

I learned that kale, chard, cardoons, herbs, lettuces, dahlias, and especially fennel (despite it being an invasive species) seem to do well in the cooler, wetter climate of San Francisco.

It’s really inspiring to meet such wonderful people who are really doing amazing things.

Farm School has been even more than I would have hoped for,
