Urban Harvesting Program

Urban Harvesting Factsheet and Application

We are working with San Francisco residents and businesses to help collect and distribute food grown from trees and community gardens for distribution at shelters, food banks and other places of need. You can participate by registering your fruit trees and working with our Urban Harvesting Program.

Community Clean Team is San Francisco Public Works’ longest-running and largest volunteer program that keeps San Francisco beautiful through landscaping and gardening projects, graffiti removal and litter cleanup in our neighborhoods. Community Clean Team, in partnership with the Giant Sweep anti-litter campaign, needs your help to keep our city clean and green in 2017. Join us and volunteer!

Adopt-A-Street Program


The Adopt-A-Street Program is a partnership between the City and its merchants and residents. Groups or individuals agree to adopt an area and take responsibility for keeping the street, sidewalk, and storm drain clean. In return, we provide free street cleaning supplies, and litter and compostable leaf bag pickup.


Public Works has many opportunities for volunteers to clean and green San Francisco!
