GLIDE’s Gardens: Earth Day, Everyday

The GLIDE community celebrates Earth Day everyday from our rooftop gardens at our Family Youth and Childcare Center (FYCC), Cecil Williams Community House (CW House), and Graze the Roof, our volunteer-run edible garden at 330 Ellis.

GLIDE’s gardens bring our urban community closer to nature and closer to their food sources. Each of the gardens is used as a tool for education, community building, and most importantly, our gardens invite our community into discussions about food justice and food equality. In a neighborhood without a single grocery store, Tenderloin residents rely on the food that is available to them at their corner stores or bodegas. Our gardens open up the possibility for nutritious and healthy eating to our communities.

GLIDE sends a special shout-out to the SF Board of Supervisors President, @londonbreed, and our District 6 Supervisor, @supejanekim, for their swift response to our call to help.
