The Hummingbird Farm transforms underutilized land into a community farm with the goal of supporting the health and wellness of residents. The farm aims to teach water conservation and sustainable food practices to communities in the Excelsior neighborhood and the Southeast while training community leaders to promote growing and eating healthy food.
Our Agency partners with PODER, a local community organization, on the Hummingbird Farm, an urban agriculture farm at Crocker Amazon Park. Located on six acres of SFPUC land, the farm makes affordable produce available to communities in the Excelsior neighborhood. It is managed and operated by PODER and provides hundreds of pounds of organic fruits and vegetables each season. The grounds also serve as a community hub, providing a space for individuals of all ages and abilities to participate in farming, educational activities, and cultural celebrations.
Visiting the Farm
Hummingbird Farm is located at Crocker Amazon Park next to the soccer fields parking lot (entrance on Geneva near Moscow Street). The farm is accessible by the 8 Muni Metro Line. To learn about farming and urban agriculture opportunities at Hummingbird, contact PODER about how you can get involved.
The SFPUC, PODER and San Francisco Public Works have completed the Hummingbird Farm Master Plan. While the initial build-out of the community garden was completed in 2017, the Hummingbird Farm Master Plan will guide development on the remainder of the farm area to help achieve the original vision of providing affordable produce to the Excelsior neighborhood and ample community gathering space.
