Alemany Farm Harvest Festival – Sat October 19th!

Dear Farm Friends,

It’s that time of year again: the days are shortening, the rainy season is nearing, we’re bringing in the last of our summer crops of tomatoes and zucchini, and putting cool weather crops in the ground. We’re lucky here in SF to be able to sow, grow, and harvest year round, but this is still a good season to celebrate the hard work we do all year to grow food, habitat, and community.

Harvest is a time of gathering, so please join us for our 9th Annual Alemany Farm Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 19th, from 11am to 5pm!

Bring yourself, friends and family to enjoy activities for people of all ages:

– T-shirt stenciling
– Face painting
– Scavenger hunt & nature crafts for kids
– Garden tasks
– Farm tours & Neighborhood Vineyard tour
– Live acoustic music from Bernal’s own The Knuckle Knockers!

…and Food:
As usual, we’ll have a delicious potluck picnic. We’ll provide BBQ (including veggie options) and a green farm salad.
Please bring a snack, side, beverage, or dessert to share!

And as usual…it’s free! So please come out to the farm and share community with old friends and new friends. We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, you can always join us for these upcoming community work days:

Saturday, Oct 12, Noon – 5pm
Monday, Oct 14, 1pm – 5pm
Saturday, Oct 19, 11am – 5pm: HARVEST FESTIVAL
