Community organizers are inviting San Francisco residents to help weed, water and harvest food at the Tenderloin People’s Garden today.
Volunteers from the Redwood Trust Employee Foundation, an organization that recently donated $10,000 to support the garden, will join the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation for Harvest Day.
The garden is located at Larkin and McAllister streets.
The food harvested today will be given to low-income families in the neighborhood, organizers said.
According to organizers, the garden supplies more than 2,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to neighborhood residents every year.
“When we became aware of TNDC’s significant and positive impact on the condition of low-income families in its neighborhood, the decision to support their efforts was one of the easiest we’ve ever made,” Redwood Trust employee Katie Links said.
TNDC officials said they would use the donation to help support garden staff salaries and supplies.
