The South San Francisco Community Garden was established and first used by growers in 1984. It is located on Commercial Avenue east of Chestnut Avenue, and consists of 28 plots, a storage shed, water spigots, and a portable toilet is also on site.
Plots are leased for a fee of $75 per year plus a $25 key deposit. They are leased on a yearly basis to South San Francisco residents who cultivate, plant, maintain, and enjoy gardening space while supplying their own tools, equipment and supplies.
Renewal of plots takes place in April of each year. Presently no plots are available, and there is a waiting list. Interested parties may call Marie Patea at Park Maintenance to be placed on the list if and when plots become available at (650) 829-3837.
