Serving Bay Area Communities

Kids in the Garden

Students from San Francisco's John Muir Elementary School harvest salad greens on a field trip to Green Gulch Farm in Marin County as part of the Environmental Adventures Program of the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Parks Group.


Poor communities and neighborhoods frequently have fewer parks, lack equipment to take advantage of outdoor recreation, and are in need of more environmentally-friendly public transportation. With this in mind, the Environment Program makes a small number of multi-year grants to support regional organizations that partner with residents of these communities.

Through these grants, the Environment Program works to:

•    Improve and expand urban parks.
•    Support outdoor recreation programs for youth.
•    Improve public transportation available to these communities.

The Environment Program accepts unsolicited Letters of Inquiry for its Serving Bay Area Communities grantmaking. For more information, please click here.
