Kezar Gardens Ecology Center is a project of the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council.  Located at 780 Frederick Street, at the South East end of Golden Gate Park, Kezar Gardens is home to a native plant nursery, a community garden and a state certified recycling center as well as supporting artists, education and culture that impacts the surrounding area.

This blog is produced by Artist-In-Residence Soumyaa Kapil Behrens.  Behrens directed the short film, My Garbage, My Neighborhood (2011) about the recycling center and its poorest patrons.  To learn more about the short film: www.mygarbage.org.

She is currently collaborating with the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council on a feature film that expands on the environmental and family legacy behind Kezar Gardens as well as their battle against wrongful eviction by the SF Rec and Park Department.
