April 2021 Update: We are thrilled to welcome corporate volunteer groups of up to 12 people back to Alemany Farm! Details here: CORPORATE GROUP VISITS & VIRTUAL FARM EVENTS
Due to COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions on gatherings, we are still unable to host individual volunteers. We are currently determining how to reintroduce volunteer workdays safely, taking into account staffing, scheduling, and capacity limits on participants. Stay tuned for more info!
Note that City parks and green spaces – including Alemany Farm – remain open for the public to visit while observing social and physical distancing guidelines. Please be assured that the farm is being kept thriving and productive by a small approved team until we can gather together again as a community. Find more farm updates. You can also join our email list to receive farm news.
[NOTE: Due to pandemic restrictions on gatherings, our community workdays are currently suspended. At present we are determining how we can welcome folks back to the farm safely in the coming months.] Everyone, young or old, experienced or still learning, is welcome to join our community workdays held from Noon to 5 pm every 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month and the Saturdays in-between, plus every Monday afternoon from 1 to 5 pm. Individual volunteers: No need to register in advance! New volunteers are encouraged to take an orientation tour of the farm at the beginning of the workday.
WHAT TO BRING:
- Water Bottle
- Sturdy Shoes
- Jacket with layered clothing underneath
- A bag (to bring home some produce)
**Travel light! The farm is an open public space and we have no secure storage for bags. Leave valuables at home and be mindful of your personal belongings, as you would in any park setting.
We’re always grateful for your energy. No need to sign up for our community workdays, just show up on a scheduled workday and we’ll try to make it a rewarding experience and send you home with a few veggies.
By BART: Glen Park is the closest BART station. It is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike to the farm. When exiting the station, cross Bosworth St, then turn right on Bosworth and follow it under the overpass. Bear left and follow Bosworth several blocks to Mission St. Cross Mission and head east on Murray St for 3 blocks until it ends at the entrance to Saint Mary’s Rec Center. Just inside the park entrance gate take an immediate right and follow the paved drive down the hill past the playground and the dog run, then bear left and down the walkway ramp to Alemany Blvd. The pedestrian gate to Alemany Farm is a few feet to the left.
Via bus from the Mission/Downtown SF: Take a 14 or 49 bus southbound on Mission Street to Bosworth (several blocks past 30th St). Cross Mission to Murray Street, then proceed along Murray and continue to the farm as described above.
