A garden for the people

I was lucky enough to spend some time with the people who run the Tenderloin People’s Garden, run by the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC). Nella Manuel is the feisty new garden coordinator, and she enthusiastically tries to recruit people in the community to come down and participate. The garden is located right across from city hall on Larkin and McCallister at the old Water House, on a piece of land donated by the city. The garden is open everyday, and there is a harvest on December 15 where anyone who lives in the Tenderloin can come to harvest many of the vegetables growing in the garden to bring home and cook! I brought home some delicious lettuce and tomato that have served well in my salads.

Take a look at the gallery of images below, and the video that show more of the garden and the great people who run it and come by to volunteer. Please keep in mind that this was my first time using a real video camera, and that the experience was a product of the limited time I had with this equipment.

Garden Hours:

Monday: 10am-12pm
Tuesday: 3-5pm
Wednesday: 10am-12pm
