This 3/4 of an acre of open space sits atop of the former Islais Creek (sometimes referred to as the Islais swamp), and has remained undeveloped.
Thirty-three (33) residential homes directly connect to this unusual property.
For many years, the lot remained undeveloped until it was rented out to Little City Gardens, who transformed the lot from 8-foot tall fennel weeds and brambles into a beautiful and quiet oasis filled with flowers and fresh produce.
Little City Gardens
The first iteration of the farm began in 2007, transforming an unused field into an abundant garden. In Spring 2010, the farm moved to it's current location on 203 Cotter Street, in the Mission Terrace neighborhood.
The Farm grows, sells, and distributes healthy organic produce, honey, and flowers to local San Francisco restaurants, including; Bar Tartine, Tartine Bakery, Mission Pie, Outerlands, and Californios.
Little City Garden's urban agriculture business extends to the neighborhood, selling produce and flower bouquets with items such as colorful dahlias and ranuculus, in the style of community-supported agriculture boxes. “Selling only to restaurants isolates the farm from its closest neighbors,” stated Little City Gardens.
Tours, workshops, educational experiences, a winter fair for the neighborhood with hand-made goods, giving away food and flowers to neighbors, and donating to community events, are among the contributions that Little City Gardens has made to our neighborhood.
