10 Mile Garden



Introduction: 10 Mile Garden

San Francisco’s network of more than 9000 fire hydrants creates a significant, legal opportunity to add to the ecological green footprint of every neighborhood and of the city as a whole without, violating fire department regulations. The project creates a framework for community participation by marking hydrants with QR codes, which will feed into a website that informs the public about the project and the potential of a citywide implementation. The digital interface may also allow visitors to drop an idea for additional programs, which would function as a virtual survey.
