Harvest Fest and Party!

Dear Farm Friends:

We hope you can come to the Farm this Sunday, October 19 for our Fourth Annual Alemany Farm Harvest Festival. We’ll start the festivities at Noon with some work projects including saving our sunflower seeds for next summer and clearing beds in preparation for winter. Around 1 PM, the bands will start playing, and will spend the afternoon making music courtesy of some bicycle-powered amps.

Throughout the afternoon we’ll have bicycle hayrides, face painting, sack races, and other games for kids. At 3 PM we’ll fire up the grill. We will have organic hot dogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. At the end of the day, we’ll do an especially large harvest so everyone gets to take home a head of lettuce, some greens, carrots, or greenbeans.

Also, please remember that next Wednesday, Oct 22, there will be a party at the Rickshaw Stop to benefit the Farm. The event, hosted by Party Corps (http://www.partycorps.org/proto/node/16) will include performances by B Brown, Brass Liberation Orchestra, and Afrolicious. Tickets are $10. Hope to see you at one of these events.

The Farm Team
