GENERAL INFO

Location

The Gardens are located inside the gates of Fort Mason which is at the intersection of Bay and Franklin Streets in San Francisco's Marina District. As you enter Fort Mason, just after the first stop sign, you will make a soft left around the little chapel. Immediately on your left are the Gardens. 

Garden Plots

The Garden has one hundred twenty five garden plots. Most of these garden plots measure 20x5 feet. Members are entitled to grow vegetables and flowers in these plots as they wish. Organic gardening is widely encouraged. The use of pesticides is forbidden anywhere in the garden. Plots are assigned by the Membership Chair as they become vacant.

Currently, the waiting period is approximately 7 to 8 years. However, families on the waiting list are able to participate in common area projects immediately through our Helpers Program. Once you have joined the waiting list you may attend our regular workdays (listed under Calendar section) and be assigned a common area project.

The Fort Mason Community Garden is committed to providing access to all visitors and users including those with disabilities. If you have questions, suggestions, or a request for reasonable accommodation, please contact the one of our board members. An accessible plot will be made available upon valid request for qualifying current gardeners and for new gardeners when they become eligible from the wait list. 

There is no time limitation on how long you can be a garden member, as long as you are a member in good standing.
