Fifty-six community garden spots going up for lottery in Hayes Valley

Like gardening, but don’t have a space to garden? If you live in San Francisco, you may be in luck: 56 four-by-four foot community garden lots are coming up for lottery soon, at Hayes Valley’s recently completed housing development Alchemy by Alta.

The newly christened Hayes Valley Community Garden is located on Haight Street, between Buchanan and Laguna streets.

Most community garden plots in San Francisco have dozens, if not hundreds of people on the waiting list. A lottery will take place for these 56 lots on Jan. 15, 2017. To sign up, email your full name, phone number, preferred email address, and zip code to alchemygardensf@gmail.com. Only one plot will be awarded per household.
