“1849 Medicine Garden has been such a wonderful addition to the neighborhood, transforming an eyesore of a neglected yard from a tangle of unsightly lumps and weeds into a manicured, lovingly cared-for garden which aces the City of San Francisco’s mission for growing a sustainable, drought resistant, urban ecosystem.”

“I love visiting the garden. It's such an amazing oasis, right in the middle of the Mission. It fills me with hope and excitement to have an herbal medicine garden just blocks from some of the most intense gentrification. I love seeing where the herbs grow, what they look like fresh, and what other plants they grow near.”
