Careers in Horticulture



San Francisco Foliage is proud to make its home in the Bayview-Hunter's Point neighborhood of San Francisco. Bayview is a community with a rich history but also one with many challenges. It is a neighborhood with strong employment resources and one of the highest rates of unemployment in the City of San Francisco.

Bayview also has the highest percentage of families with children in San Francisco and the highest concentration of Transition Aged Youth - young people poised to enter the workforce. San Francisco Foliage believes that these youth are the solution to this paradox.

To be part of that solution we have created Careers in Horticulture.

Careers in Horticulture is a job-readiness training program for young adults from our neighborhood. Working in partnership with Five Keys Charter School we offer work-based learning internships with an integrated educational component. Interns gain valuable job experience in the greenhouse trades along with their first paycheck, while earning credit toward their high school diploma or GED.

To learn more about the work of Careers in Horticulture please visit our website or like us on Facebook.

By doing business with us, you are participating in a partnership with our community. Thank you!
