SAN FRANCISCO’S GARDEN DISTRICT OPENS ITS DOORS FOR 11th ANNUAL PORTOLA GARDEN TOUR!
Once home to flower-growing enterprises and farms, The Portola is known as San Francisco’s Garden District. The garden tour is a self-guided walk through private and public gardens in the sunny Portola neighborhood in San Francisco’s southeastern quadrant. It’s also a fundraiser for City College horticulture students.
Participants will learn about what plants thrive in San Francisco, how to make even small spaces outstanding, ideas for decks and patios and fun landscaping tips -- and get inspired to work on their own back yard. It’s a wonderful community building experience as neighbors open their yards to scores of tour participants.
This year we are proud to host a community “after-party” where we'll be serving up "Hyper-local Fresh Hop Ale" - a beer brewed with hops grown right here by gardeners in The Portola! Come celebrate the history of this wonderful neighborhood and taste a truly 'hyper-local' brew at the close of the tour!
