Greenhouses for the Garden District

For seventy years, commercial greenhouses characterized the vibrant urban-agricultural heritage of the Portola, once known to all as “San Francisco’s Garden.” Today, the neighborhood still prides itself on being San Francisco’s “Garden District,” yet the University Mound Greenhouses, built in 1922, are the last of its greenhouses. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission currently has plans underway to "daylight" the upper portion of Yosemite Creek (see project description here: http://sfwater.org/index.aspx?page=699). Inclusion of the greenhouse property in PUC's design for this multi-million dollar investment will help meet four neighborhood priorities: urban agriculture, self-sufficiency, leadership, and blight removal.

Please sign the petition at http://www.change.org/petitions/greenhouses-for-the-garden-district to ask the SFPUC to include the greenhouse property in their overall plan for the Yosemite Creek watershed.
