We hope that you can join us this Saturday, October 23 as we celebrate Alemany Farm’s Sixth Annual Harvest Festival!
The festivities will start around 11 AM as we dig into some of our Autumn tasks: Turning over beds for our winter cover crop and preparing and planting beds with our 2011 garlic crop.
As we work hard, we’ll also be playing hard.
This year we’ll have a couple of bands, which will start around 1 PM and continue through the afternoon. And throughout the day we’ll also have plenty of games for kids: face painting, t-shirt stenciling, and bike-powered hay rides. Of course, you don’t have to be under 5-feet to make a t-shirt. Bring a shirt from home and we’ll have lots of garden-themed stencils so you can make your own Alemany Farm t-shirt.
Then stick around for the BBQ. For the second year in a row we’ll be roasting a whole suckling pig that was sustainably raised on Northern California pasture and then humanely slaughtered by a local butcher. For those of you who don’t do meat, we will have veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs on the grill. We’ll also have some fresh salads straight from the garden. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
The Harvest Festival is our time to celebrate another successful season and to thank one another for all of the hard work we’ve done to make San Francisco more food secure. We hope you can come and share it with us.
