SoMa’s New Filipino “Kapwa Gardens” Opening Day
SoMA’s brand new Filipino-inspired community space designed for social distancing, complete with a garden of Philippine calamansi fruit trees that are free for taking, is opening in April. Kapwa Gardens — a city-owned parking lot turned art & wellness pop-up and healing space for the community — will open to the public on April 14, 2021. Please note the opening day is April 14, not April 13 as was originally listed. Also there are some pre-launch events that are intended specifically for invited guests and volunteers who helped build the gardens.
