Seeds of Hope

Nestled between highways in a low-income San Francisco neighborhood, lives a four-acre, organic haven, called Alemany Farm. This garden is full of fruits, vegetables and the seeds of hope for a better future.

California Heartland’s Toan Lam meets Executive Director of Alemany Farm, Alice Carruthers as she explains the mission of this unique urban program.

Hunter’s Point is one of the most crime ridden, violent neighborhoods in San Francisco. It’s here that Alice had a vision to keep kids off the streets, thereby lowering crime. Alemany Farm serves as a safe refuge and sanctuary, which has fulfilled her goals. It is a small, urban, non-profit farm which is made possible by grant money, people power and love.

Alemany provides fresh and organic produce to low income families living in the area and a safe ground for children to work, play and learn about the environment and healthy eating habits.

Meet the children and adults who live in this neighborhood and see how their pride for tending the land, has grown into much more.
