Produce Stand Needs Your Vote Now!

After our first full year of growing operations, the Florence Fang Asian Community Garden is bringing healthy food to over 60 local families, engaging hundreds of volunteers in stewardship, and helping the community grow their own fresh vegetables!
Now we want to grow more! We’ve applied for a $5,000 SF Parks Alliance grant. Internet voting is now open and it takes less than a minute to VOTE HERE! We plan to build a produce stand and more planter boxes, because fresh Asian vegetables are almost impossible to find in the area. Please help us bring more healthy produce to the community!
Please help us spread the word on social media, and VOTE NOW for the Florence Fang Asian Community Garden!

Garden Clippings ....

Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity help load up rich Malibu Compost for growing veggies! There are 64 planter boxes in the garden now. Come see our special Harmony Cloud and Goat Layout designs! And sign up for your own planter box to grow fresh vegetables and produce for your family!
Bayview Gardens Solidarity Tour Brandi Mack, Master Gardener (center) at Adam Rogers Community Garden talks to local residents participating in the inaugural Bayview Solidarity Tour that showcased community gardens on community-reclaimed land. The Tour kicked off at the Florence Fang Asian Community Garden and was organized by CYC’s Eddie Zheng (far left).
Members of the Asian American Bar Association joined with regular garden volunteers to clean out all the brush above the garden on the Thornton Street sidewalk.
Please walk by and send us your ideas on how to keep the sidewalk clean and welcoming for the neighborhood!
Thanks to local residents Minjen Chang and her husband for donating their plants to our community garden where the plants are blending in perfectly alongside our growing bamboo!

We're Lemonny Fresh!
We have a “mini-orchard” of 12 lemon trees! Thanks to Chief Lemon Ambassador Isabel Wade from Just One Tree! Our first lemons appeared last summer and we have four different varieties! We’re so thankful to Isabel for her partnership, and we’re all thankful to Cal/Releaf for their support of Just One Tree!
