Garden for the Environment

Greenhouse and Site Re-design

Many of we urban dwellers have heard about the virtues of ecologically-minded technologies, but seldom see them made manifest and up close in our immediate environments. The Studio for Urban Projects is collaborating with the Garden for the Environment (GFE), San Francisco’s premiere demonstration garden, to remake its half-acre site to include a new greenhouse and demonstrations of solar power, rain catchment, a green roof and more. The project was awarded a Community Challenge Grant from the City of San Francisco and is slated for completion in summer 2011.
