Greenhouses for the Garden District

The Greenhouse Project started this petition to Sewer System Improvement Program, Upper Yosemite Creek Daylighting Project San Francisco Public Utilities Commission

For seventy years, commercial greenhouses characterized the vibrant urban-agricultural heritage of the Portola, once known to all as “San Francisco’s Garden.” Today, the neighborhood still prides itself on being San Francisco’s “Garden District,” yet the University Mound Greenhouses, built in 1922, are the last of its greenhouses. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission currently has plans underway to "daylight" the upper portion of Yosemite Creek (see project description here: http://sfwater.org/index.aspx?page=699). Inclusion of the greenhouse property in PUC's design for this multi-million dollar investment will help meet four neighborhood priorities: urban agriculture, self-sufficiency, leadership, and blight removal.
