Update on Farm Workdays

Dear Farm Friends,

Due to the shelter-in-place order now in effect in the City and County of San Francisco, there is no volunteering at Alemany Farm through May 3. This is part of the widespread effort to control the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Rest assured that the farm will be safely cared for by a skeleton crew of approved staff in the coming weeks, so that we can keep it thriving and productive until we can welcome volunteers to join us again.

Please note that many City parks and green spaces remain open for the public to visit while observing social and physical distancing guidelines.

We will miss working together with you in the physical Alemany Farm space in the coming weeks; we know that our workdays are a respite for many of us from the stressors of daily life and a chance to connect with Bay Area neighbors in a shared mission. Although we do not have this common space for the moment, we hope that we’ll all remain in community spirit even at a distance. We encourage you to take good care of yourselves and each other, and to find safe and responsible ways to enjoy a bit of fresh air and the natural world on your own.

Please visit the San Francisco Department of Public Health website for more information on the response to COVID-19. 

Please be well and look out for each other. We look forward to when we can gather together again at the farm.
