Urban Sprouts


This nonprofit’s programs are focused on individuals and families in San Francisco’s southeastern neighborhoods


Two community garden sites in the Excelsior neighborhood and the Mission Bay


Urban Sprouts was established in 2004 on the research-proven foundation that beautiful and safe outdoor environments are the best conduits for healthy, economically thriving communities. They leverage their gardens as culturally responsive, interactive classrooms; sources of fresh, nutritious food; and as incubators for a 21st-century workforce that understands the importance of social justice and climate resilience. Support youth entrepreneurship and garden-based education by shopping for plant starts and salves at Urban Sprouts’ stand on Thursdays.
