Sunol AgPark Overview
The Sunol Water Temple AgPark, created in 2006 through an historic partnership between San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) and SAGE, fosters sustainable farming and public education programs while protecting natural resources in the Alameda Creek watershed. The AgPark is located in the beautiful Sunol Valley at the confluence of two wild creeks, on 18 acres of prime farmland that SAGE leases from SFPUC. The AgPark is adjacent to the 100-year-old Sunol Water Temple.
Today, the AgPark is a thriving urban-edge farm, home to four small-scale organic farming enterprises that produce delicious, fresh food for diverse Bay Area communities. SAGE provides technical and marketing assistance for farmers and has established an irrigation system, fencing, and farm roads on AgPark land.
Through the continuing support of the SFPUC, the AgPark also provides hands-on environmental education for schoolchildren, service learning and job training for youth, and volunteer and natural resource stewardship opportunities for community members. SAGE is collaborating with SFPUC on the development of the Alameda Creek Watershed Center – a permanent environmental education center being built at the AgPark and the Water Temple.
