About your host

Growing up in a family of gardeners in rural America, I earned an appreciation for quiet outdoor gardens. I've made San Francisco my home for the last 12-years, and will share the lush and tranquil garden retreats in San Francisco with you.

What we’ll do

This walking tour visits verdant gardens of urban San Francisco. Due to an awesome law, all of the large buildings in Downtown SF provide 1% of construction costs to fund public commons. Most of them are just concrete courtyards or pedestrian walkways with benches, but a small handful are lush secret gardens. We'll share the joys of walking in San Francisco with people of all abilities and ages…

Where you'll be

This walking tour will visit 9 gardens and cover 1.5-miles. The walking tour begins with a walk into the Vaillancourt Fountain and across the Embarcadero Center rooftop walkway flanked by waterfalls, fountains, foliage, and art work. Next we'll visit several rooftop gardens. We end with a gondola ride to San Francisco's newest rooftop garden, a 5.4-acre sprawling verdant paradise.
