The greening of San Francisco’s Tenderloin is getting a big boost thanks to the support of Segment Inc. and 50 Just One Tree lemon trees that have landed in the urban environment. With a home base for safekeeping and growing at the Demonstration Gardens under the green thumbs of Kasey Asberry and her environmental interns at the UC Hastings Greening program, these 50 JOT trees are being planted in various Tenderloin community locations. View a map of current and planned lemon tree grove sites in the Tenderloin here.
In November of 2016, local children (pictured below) helped out during a planting event to spruce up the front of a Tenderloin housing location with JOT trees:
