little city gardens kicks off!

posted February 5, 2010

Brooke was on my radio show yesterday.
She is expanding her farm. She is the beautiful one in the greenhorns trailer– who knocked on the car windows to get access to her garden plot? remember?

She has achieved cult status with her drawings for greenhorns– of which there are now 38 stickers.
She is using kickstarter to raise money for her new bigger farm project

love, severine

Help an Urban Farm Grow!

Little City Gardens is a blossoming urban farming business located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Farmers Brooke Budner and Caitlyn Galloway produce an artisinal salad mix, braising mix and culinary herbs, which they sell weekly to a restaurant, and neighborhood subscribers.  As they work, they are developing and analyzing the potential of urban micro-farms to be financially viable within the local market economy.  Little City Gardens seeks to serve a diverse population and to build a community dialogue about food systems, by involving and educating members in their processes and problem-solving.

They are expanding this spring to a larger lot and need your help to raise the funds for start-up capital!
