Hayes Valley Farm - Before (2009)

Roll over the map to see what's grown between January 2010 through the present.


Hayes Valley Farm used to be a freeway. Now it's an an example of what an all-volunteer organization can do with interim-use land, in partnership with the neighborhood and the City.


Hayes Valley Farm is open Wednesday and Sunday, 12-5pm, through the end of May 2013. From now till that time, we will be transitioning soil and volunteer energy onto other sites. Come harvest some Hayes Valley Farm soil, and take a lil piece of this moment with you to start your own garden or community urban farm!


Hayes Valley Farm is located on 2.2 acres in the heart of San Francisco. The site used to be the offramp to traffic coming from the East Bay, prior to the damage of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake in San Francisco Bay Area.




Since January 24th, over 2,000 volunteers have transformed an acre of land from a freeway into a food forest. Now it's your turn to join the party. Take photos, make a friend, plant some favas, or ride a wheelbarrow. All ages welcome.
