St. Paulus Urban Farm - Western Addition, San Francisco
St. Paulus Lutheran - Western Addition District
The 103 year old St. Paulus cathedral was destroyed by fire in 1995. And since then the congregation has been hoping to redevelop the site. Existing as ″church without walls″ in the Fillmore district of San Francisco, St. Paulus continues its history of ministry with the homeless, those living with HIV/AIDS and responding to racism and injustice.
This location has served as a garden in the past, but was ended as St. Paulus sought to redevelop the site. Recently as the current economic downturn has stalled the redevelopment project, the site will once again be used for gardening.
We hope to turn the site into an urban farm that can provide produce for low income residents in the area while also creating volunteer and arts opportunities.
