Hayes Valley Farm Update
Noticed any activity on Parcels “O” and “P”, a.k.a. the old on- and off-ramps between Fell and Oak, Laguna and Octavia? Thanks to all of the support, enthusiasm, and energy of the community, and especially all of the neighbors and volunteers who believed in the project, Hayes Valley Farm is no longer an idea. It is actually happening!
Hayes Valley Farm (HVF) is an education and research project with a focus on urban agriculture. Situated on the city-owned lots where highway 101 once touched down, the project is organized by an alliance of urban farmers, educators, and designers that comprise the HVF Project Team. HVF is a Parks Partner, a fiscally sponsored project of the San Francisco Parks Trust.
The project is founded on an interim use agreement between Hayes Valley Farm and the City’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development- a two to five year time frame - until which time the City moves forward with other development plans for the site.
