Explore the Tenderloin National Forest, an inner city alleyway that has been transformed into a vibrant urban garden. The project is a shining example of how to uncover latent value and build community amidst urban blight. The tour will stop by the Luggage Store Gallery, which features a hydroponically supported living wall, and related sites along the way. Led by Darryl Smith, co-founder and co-director of the Luggage Store Gallery; Julia Glanville, artist and educator; and Brent Bucknum, environmental artist, activist and founder of Hyphae Design Laboratory.
