While urban agriculture has been immensely popular in the San Francisco region, highly competitive land markets increasingly compel landowners, both public and private, to put their properties to uses other than gardening. Gardeners have developed a variety of strategies to gain and maintain access to land. In so doing, they connect gardening to a “land politics” that asks who should have access to and decision-making power over particular properties as well as broader urban design. This chapter explores how gardeners influence the production of space and the institution of property.

Keywords:   urban agriculture, spatial production, property, food justice, land politics, gardening
