This site, funded in part by the city of San Francisco, is an online map and social tool that measures urban gardening in San Francisco and connects gardeners with one another.

Gardeners and non-gardeners alike can join, place themselves on a shared map, and offer quantitative data about their gardening space, as well as qualitative data about how gardening could be made easier in the city. Gardeners can publish surplus alerts, allowing them to distribute their surplus food.

The resultant map tells a story about the fabric of the city, helping to inform city leadership.
