Strawberry Planting + Farm Fundraiser

Dear Farm Friends:

Please join us at Alemany Farm this Saturday, Nov 21 as we plant our 2010 strawberries. We will be putting about 300 plants in the ground, and we hope you are there to help us. We will also be sowing some of the last cover crop and building new compost.

Also, if you plan on staying in town for Thanksgiving, we hope you can make it to a fundraiser that a local bar, Riptide, is hosting for us.

Here are the details:

Wednesday, November 25th 8PM-2AM
The Riptide, 3639 Taraval St. @ 47th Ave., SF

Wet Wednesday Benefit for Friends of Alemany Farm. Proceeds will help cover the costs of seeds, starts, and equipment for the 2010 season.

Please join at the Wet Wednesday benefit party for Friends of Alemany Farm. This month’s benefit will feature silly short films by the Aqua Surf Shop Crew (Silvin Morgan, Brian Musial, Aleks Petrovitch and Merle). This collection includes zombie surf flicks and a short in which stoned hippie surfers are hunted by inbred rednecks. The films start at 8PM sharp. At 9PM DJ Paul will be spinning, soul, funk, dub, breaks, hip hop and reggae. There will be plenty of free food and best of all there is no admission charge.

We will raise money with a $5 raffle for a Las Olas Surfboard (a biofoam 7’0” rounded pin single fin).

Other great prizes will be donated by Java Beach Cafe, Timbuk2, Red Vic Movie House, Mocha 101, the Pizza Place on Noriega and Jaimal Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha. Sierra Nevada will also donate $1 for every pint of their beer that is sold and a portion of the bar sales and tips will also be donated.

Wet Wednesday is a weekly party at the Riptide on the last Wednesday of every month being a benefit for a non-profit or worthy cause.

Finally: Please note that there will be NO WORKDAY the weekend after Thanksgiving. We will be busy napping.

Thanks, as always, for all your work to make SF more food secure.
