Dear Farm Friends:
It’s high summer, and at Alemany Farm we’re enjoying all the fruits of summer: plums and strawberries, yes, but also loads of green beans, potatoes, carrots, beets, squash, and basil. The garden is popping at the seams, and it’s a great time to come out and enjoy a few hours working in the sun.
Even though we’re an all volunteer-run organization, we do have some costs: seeds, starts, irrigation equipment, tools. So we’re really hoping that we are among the winners of the De Loach Vineyards and Organic Gardening contest for the most innovative community gardens and urban farms in the country.
Please visit http://www.deloachcommunitygardens.com/ today and vote for Alemany Farm!! We are the garden in the upper left hand corner. As you can see below, we are battling for fifth place, so we really need your vote!
