It’s an exciting time at Little City Gardens! This past month, we made the leap and hired our friends at Goodscapes to trench 250 feet of soil and extend our underground piping all the way to the back of the property. This new piping will allow us to finally farm the back area we’ve for so long had to keep fallow, eventually expanding our cultivatable area quite a bit. It’s a very exciting and necessary step! But it’s also very expensive, as the installation of this underground piping, combined with the aboveground infrastructure, falls far beyond what we can cover through produce sales.

So in order to help cover some of the costs, we’ve put together something special: a fully catered, private dinner for six on one of the most beautiful, unique acres in the city.


  • the chance to invite 5 friends or family members of their choosing
  • a private farm tour before dinner
  • an outstanding catered meal featuring produce from Little City Gardens, as well as treats and provisions from Bar Tartine & Tartine Bakery, Mission Pie, the Milk Maid, and more!
  • a unique, awe-inspiring farm backdrop, right in the middle of the city — backlit flower fields as the sun goes down, row after row of crisp greens, and the smell of fresh herbs wafting over the table
  • a flower-laden candlelit setting, lights strung from the eucalyptus, wine to warm your bellies, and a cozy crackling fire pit to toast your toes in case the summer fog rolls in

We’re pulling all the stops for this lovely event, and we can’t wait for a lucky group to join us! Get your raffle tickets here through 5/26.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday 5/27 on our website (and will also receive an email). The dinner will be scheduled for late June with an exact date to be coordinated with the winner.

Please consider supporting our irrigation expansion by buying a ticket and spreading the word far and wide. (And of course, the more times you enter, the better your chances!)

THANK YOU for your support, and good luck to all!
