San Francisco’s Largest Community Farm Renamed Florence Fang Community Farm

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Today, the Florence Fang Community Farm (FFCF) unveiled its new logo and name to reflect FFCF’s growth as the largest community farm and second most productive urban farm in San Francisco. With this rebranding, the farm continues its mission towards feeding families, sustaining nature, and growing culturally diverse communities.

The new logo design mirrors three practices of Florence Fang Community Farm:

  • Uplifting - Spreading community spirit, shared joy of nature and accomplishment when working together, as well as signifying collective environmental stewardship
  • Healthy Living – Growing, harvesting and sharing fresh produce to encourage outdoor activities and promote active lifestyles
  • Diversity - Welcoming and connecting all generations, races and people of different backgrounds with a purpose of creating community empowerment

Florence Fang Community Farm’s community-based programs include:

  • Crop production in western, Black and Chinese traditional produce
  • After-school STEM youth education on the farm
  • Strengthening intergenerational, cross-cultural gardening activities
  • Promoting environmental justice, habitat restoration and food sovereignty
  • COVID-19 pandemic food service program for vulnerable residents
  • Community events for the general public and partnering with local groups

FFCF embodies the vision of human beings coming together - from all ages, having diverse racial backgrounds, and speaking different languages - to rejuvenate the earth, feed people and grow community with each other.

Faheem Carter, one of FFCF’s gardeners, shared: “I have been with the Florence Fang Community Farm for 7 years and love seeing the impact the farm has brought to life for our neighborhoods here in San Francisco. What is most meaningful to me is being able to cultivate and share gardening practices to other people around, which ultimately helps us promote a more close-knit, healthy-living community.”

The new logo and name as Florence Fang Community Farm are now officially live on its website http://www.ffcommunityfarm.org/ and across social media channels –Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

To celebrate the launch of new logo and name, Florence Fang Community Farm is hosting a four-week giveaway on its Instagram to share the love to the growing farm community. To enter, users on the platform have to share their favorite gardening and farm photos in their feed and tell the farm how it relates to its three rebrand messaging: Uplifting, Healthy Living, and/or Diversity.
