Pennsylvania Street Gardens

San Francisco, CA

In 2008 Annie Shaw and Matt Petty founded volunteer-run Pennsylvania Street Gardens to showcase xeric plants from all over the world and reduce water use in ornamental gardening while inspiring the community to join in. Their first garden, Pennsylvania Garden, sits on almost an acre of Caltrans-owned land and proves you can have a gorgeous landscape without using much water-if any! An additional garden, Pennsylvania Railroad Garden, is just down the hill along the 100 block of Pennsylvania Avenue. Planted in 2012, it has 23 trees, a walking path, and hundreds of the types of plants that performed best at our original garden. Once a derelict expanse of trash and encampments, it has brought peace and beauty to this part of Potrero Hill. 

Complement your Open Day with a visit to this nearby public garden.  The Garden Conservancy is not ticketing this garden.  For more information about visiting, please visit their website at http://www.psgsf.org/
