Since 2007, our (private) backyard and basement have held free community gatherings, the most popular being the 10,000-volume free Book Blast. This site offers information about events hosted in the backyard at Sixth & Irving, in the friendly Inner Sunset of San Francisco.


Events have always been completely free. Our motto remains “Twice your money back if you’re dissatisfied.”


To be notified of or volunteer for some of these unique adventures, please add your information. We promise never to sell or distribute your information.

    A peaceful, unique garden in the Inner Sunset to relax in sunshine, with radio classical music. Open if I'm around and when it's a sunny Sunday afternoon, all are welcome to read, knit, laugh, dream, meditate, eat and even surf the Web, as long as no one talks. Remember: It's a *silent* garden!
