Dear Farm Friends:
First, many thanks to all of you who came to Alemany Farm for our 3rd Annual Earth Day BBQ last weekend. It was a great way to bring together San Francisco’s diverse communities, and we hope you had as much fun as we did.
If you missed the BBQ, no sweat, because we still have plenty of spring activities coming up. Including these weekend workdays:
Saturday, April 25: Workday with the last of the spring tillage.
Sunday, May 3: Planting tomatoes, basil, peppers, pumpkins.
Saturday, May 9: Regular workday.
Sunday, May 17: Installing the irrigation system in the medicinal herb garden, plus a workshop on beekeeping hosted by the SF Beekeepers Association. This is Part II of the workshop that occurred on April 5, a chance to go inside the hives.
Also: Don’t forget our regular Monday workdays, every week, 1 PM to 5 PM.
A Note on Visiting the Farm: As a public park, Alemany Farm is open dawn to dusk 365 days a year. But please keep in mind that Alemany Farm is a secluded, off-the-beaten-path kind of place, and that you should use your best judgement when stopping by. We encourage you make sure that you only visit with a friend or two, and that you use the same caution that you would when hanging out in, say, McLaren Park or the less-visited areas of Golden Gate Park.
Thanks for your efforts to make SF more food secure.
The Farm Team
PS: If you don’t have plans for tonight, check out a program happening tonight called Climate of Change: Global to Local Solutions for a Resilient Bay Area. The event will include food, music, and discussion about creating a sustainable Bay Area. Sponsored by our friends at Bay Localize.
