About Us

Fort Mason Community garden is a completely volunteer based organization and operates in partnership with the National Park Service. Our mission is to maintain a community garden in Fort Mason, promote community interest in gardening through demonstrations and programs and provide a free attraction for all visitors to Fort Mason.

Many of our members grow fresh produce to feed their families. Others grow flowers and ornamentals. We also have several themed communal areas that focus on growing native plants, succulents, roses and Mediterranean plants.

The garden was established in 1976 and is located inside the gates of Fort Mason which is at the intersection of Bay and Franklin Streets in San Francisco's Marina District. When you enter Fort Mason, just after the first stop sign, veer to the left around the little chapel, and you will find us immediately on your left.

The Fort Mason Community Garden occupies 1.35 acres with 128 member maintained garden plots, most of them measuring 80 square feet or more.
