Mission Statement

To create beautiful public gardens for the Potrero Hill and Dogpatch neighborhoods in San Francisco. These gardens transform areas that were once filled with trash and crime into a beautiful place to take a walk, chat with a neighbor, get dirty gardening, or attend a community event!

Description

In December 2008, Annie Shaw, a long-time San Francisco resident, decided to take matters into her own hands. What started as a small gardening project to improve her street, quickly bloomed into a neighborhood garden with many local residents donating their time and plants.

Annie ensured the future of the garden by starting the non-profit Pennsylvania Street Gardens, and with the backing of over 250 neighbors, signed a contract with Caltrans, the San Francisco Department of Public Works and the San Francisco Parks Trust to maintain the garden.

Today, the garden has grown from a small idea to thousands of plants that now fill up almost an acre and a half in two locations: With additional financial support from the neighborhood and the city of San Francisco, Pennsylvania Street Gardens also created Pennsylvania Railroad Garden a block from the original garden. Come join us on the first Saturday of every month from 10am-12pm!
