Greenhouse Rebuilding Feb 2 and Feb 9

Dear Farm Friends:

Get ready for an old-fashioned barn-raising — or in this case, a GREENHOUSE Raising!

During the next two Saturdays, February 2 and February 9, regular Alemany Farm volunteers and Alemany Dwellings residents will come together to rebuild our greenhouse. … We hope you can join as we take this important step for the Farm.

We’ll start at 11 AM sharp and wrap up around 4 PM, in time for a garden harvest. Throughout the day we will have snacks and juices to keep us going as we refurbish the building and get it ready for a busy 2013 season.

This coming Saturday we plan to remove the hard plastic walls, cut new plastic sheeting, re-install the walls, and then stretch fresh plastic across the hoop roof. We will also be installing the window vents and doors and perhaps starting on trenching for a new plumbing line.

On February 9 we will mostly concentrate on building propagation tables and work benches for the interiors, plus installing the vents.

Both days we will be laying-out and cultivating new flower beds and perennial gardens around the greenhouse.

We’re looking for any and all hands to help out. If you have building or carpentry skills, we would be especially eager to see you. And remember — it’s a barn raising, so feel free to bring your tools!

We look forward to seeing you at the Farm over the next couple of weeks for the greenhouse rebuilding.

Thanks, as always, for helping to make SF more food secure.

The Farm Team
