Hayes Valley Farm

Hayes Valley Farm was a three-year experiment in activating public space for gardening, permaculture, art, education and community. These images are part of an ongoing project documenting urban greening initiatives.

 The empty lot at Laguna Street and Fell was under the old 101 freeway on-ramp, which had been structurally damaged in the Loma Prieta Earthquake. San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development gave an interim-use lease at 450 Laguna Street to activate the 2.2. acre lot for green space.
