Dear Farm Friends:
First, we want to give a huge shout-out of GRATITUDE to all of you who came out for the recent greenhouse rebuildings. Thanks to you, the new greenhouse looks fantastic. This coming week we will put some of the finishing touches on the interior, and by the end of this month we will busy with seed sowing. So come on out and get your hands dirty with a little greenhouse propagation.
In the meantime, we want to invite you to participate in charting the Farm’s future programming. Alemany Farm’s Community Advisory Council is now up and running, and members of the public are invited to attend the group’s meetings. The next advisory council meeting is this Tuesday, Feb 19, at 6 pm at the St Mary’s Recreation Center, right above the Farm. We look forward to seeing you there.
For those of you who might be more interested in national and international sustainable agriculture issues, also on Tuesday, 2/19 Alemany Farm co-manager Jason Mark will be speaking at SPUR along with Mother Jones ag journalist Tom Philpott, writer Twilight Greenway, and writer Allison Arieff. Get your tickets here:
