Dear Farm Friends,
We hope that you can join us on Saturday, April 23 to celebrate Alemany Farm’s 10th Annual Earth Day BBQ (*View the event flyer*).
There will be spring plantings, farm tours, face painting, live music, plus a potluck picnic. Please bring a side dish or a dessert to share.
At our first Earth Day celebration in 2007, we were clearing four-foot-tall weeds and rubbish out of what today are some of our most productive garden beds. There was no such thing as an Alemany Farm Kitchen, and we had neither greenhouse nor vineyard. Today, Alemany Farm produces nearly a dozen tons of organic produce annually, hosts scores of field trips and community groups, and is a thriving part of the City’s urban agriculture ecosystem.
Celebrate these accomplishments and mark Earth Day with us on April 23. Farm work tasks begin at 11 am. Potluck BBQ will get underway around 1 pm.
We’ll be roasting a sustainably raised pig and will also have vegetarian options on the grill. There will be a humongous farm-fresh salad. Please bring other sides, desserts, and NA beverages.
Help us get ready for our Earth Day BBQ at these other upcoming workdays:
Saturday April 9, Noon – 5 pm
Monday April 11, 1 – 5 pm
Sunday April 17, Noon – 5 pm (including work in our native plant areas)
Monday April 18, 1 – 5 pm
Saturday April 23, Earth Day BBQ (11 am – 5 pm)

Thank you, as always, for your work to grow food security and build community in San Francisco.
