After working on Organic Farms in VT, founder David Stockhausen moved to San Francisco to learn about urban food movements. The result is Amyitis Gardens, a San Francisco based urban farming project that links empty yards to eager hands and backyard farms to neighborhood restaurants. The Amyitis team educates future urban farmers, installs backyard organic farms and often sells portions of the produce to restaurants as close as a few blocks away. Amyitis strives to empower the Mission District community through healthy food, farm education, and creative networking. They believe “you don’t have to buy the farm to be the farmer”. Amyitis encourages farmers everywhere to create a truly sustainable global food system throug bold innovation….maybe one back yard at a time.
