This hilltop garden was formerly a vacant lot guarded by the so-called "Goat Lady" of Potrero Hil—-a defiant character who lorded over a herd of 15 goats. It was converted into a community garden in the '70s; now any city resident can become a member. (Though the goats are long gone, you will find a chicken pen within.) Today, the 51 plots are filled with fruit trees, vegetables and an array of flowers, including roses and dahlias. And though San Francisco is rife with community gardens, this particular spot affords a standout view of the Mission, Twin Peaks and beyond.
