Spring Planting Continues + Earth Day Celebration Apr 22

Dear Farm Friends:

We were lucky to catch some good weather last weekend and were able to get in the ground a large amount of our spring plantings: broccoli, chard, kale, collards, lettuces, chois, plus squash.

If you missed out but still want to get your hands dirty, the planting fun will be continuing for a while. This weekend we’ll be planting leeks, cucumbers and some more lettuces in the main garden, along with potatoes in our root garden. The hillside is also booming with potato, lettuce, chard and squash planting. The fruit trees are in bloom and the farm is looking beautiful.

So please mark your calendars for these upcoming community workdays:

Saturday, April 7 Noon to 5 PM
Monday, April 9, 1 PM to 5 PM
Sunday, April 15, Noon to 5 PM
Monday, April 16, 1 PM to 5 PM

And put a double-and-triple star next to Sunday, April 22, when we’ll be celebrating our Annual Earth Day BBQ.

We’ll have a potluck BBQ with plenty of items (for carnivores and vegetarians alike) on the grill plus drinks and snacks. Please bring a side dish to share. We’ll have games for kids, gardening activities for anyone who wants to do some light work, plus farm tours and hopefully a music act or two.

We hope to see you at our Earth Day party, which is always a wonderful event to mark the start of a new summer season.

Thanks for your work to make SF more food secure.
