Harvest Festival THIS Saturday!

Dear Farm Friends:

Right on time. Today’s rains have the Bay feeling very autumnal, and at Alemany Farm we’re on schedule with all of our fall and winter plantings. The cabbages, cauliflower, chard and kales are all in the ground, and today we’re picking up our garlic seed. The farm is about to turn from gold to green.

Perfect for our 8th Annual Alemany Farm Harvest Festival THIS Saturday, Oct 27.

The festivities will start around 11 AM with garlic planting and other garden and orchard tasks.

Games for kids, T-shirt stenciling, and music will start shortly thereafter. We’re especially looking forward to hearing the sounds from local Bernal Heights band, The Knuckleknockers.

The BBQ will be in full swing by mid-afternoon. We’ll have a pig on the spit roast, Louisiana-style BBQ, veggie burgers, and a farro salad made from the wheat we grew ourselves this summer! It’s a potluck, so please bring a side dish or dessert to share.

The rains are expected to continue through Wednesday, but the forecast is calling for clear skies on Saturday, so this is a party you won’t want to miss.

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