HOW TO GET THERE:
By BART: Glen Park is the closest BART station. It is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike to the farm. When exiting the station, cross Bosworth St, then turn right on Bosworth and follow it under the overpass. Bear left and follow Bosworth several blocks to Mission St. Cross Mission and head east on Murray St for 3 blocks until it ends at the entrance to Saint Mary’s Rec Center. Just inside the park entrance gate take an immediate right and follow the paved drive down the hill past the playground and the dog run, then bear left and down the walkway ramp to Alemany Blvd. The pedestrian gate to Alemany Farm is a few feet to the left.
Via bus from the Mission/Downtown SF: Take a 14 or 49 bus southbound on Mission Street to Bosworth (several blocks past 30th St). Cross Mission to Murray Street, then proceed along Murray and continue to the farm as described above.
You may search Google Maps for “Alemany Farm” to make your own route by bike, bus, or car.
The largest urban farm in San Francisco, Alemany Farm offers everyone the chance to learn where their food comes from, pitch in to help, and take home fresh and free produce. Friends of Alemany Farm grows food security and educates local residents about how they can become their own food producers. They strive to increase ecological knowledge and habitat value, and to sow the seeds for economic and environmental justice. All of the food they grow is given away for free—to neighbors, volunteers, The Free Farm Stand, and other groups
On the weekends they focus on the row crop production area and compost. Depending upon the season, typical work activities include weeding or weed cutting, digging or trenching, mulching, composting, plant and seed planting, pruning, terracing, wheelbarrow hauling, laying irrigation and watering, building garden structures, and harvesting.
WHAT TO BRING:
1. Water Bottle

**Travel light! The farm is an open public space and we have no secure storage for bags. Leave valuables at home and be mindful of your personal belongings, as you would in any park setting.
