~*~ 2018 WORKSHOPS  ~*~


If you’re new to the farm, our workshops are a great excuse to come out for an introduction to some of the work we do, while learning skills you can bring home to your own garden or kitchen. For regular volunteers, they are a chance to deepen your knowledge in a more structured setting. More workshops in the spring are to be announced.

SUGGESTED DONATION: $20 per person per workshop; no one turned away for lack of funds. All donations will benefit Friends of Alemany Farm via our fiscal sponsor, the San Francisco Parks Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. You can pay with cash or check at the workshop. Checks should be payable to San Francisco Parks Alliance.


Water Gardening/Pond Clean Up Workshop &
Solar Cooking Demo

Sunday, February 18 — 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Alemany Farm
Instructors: Brett Stephens & Kerry Hughes

Water and sun are fundamental to, well … just about everything. Come out to help with our late winter pond maintenance while you learn about aquatic plants and water management. Then follow it up with some solar snacks. The day will include a discussion on pond ecology, the importance of water sources on organic farms, strategies for management and creating plant and animal diversity. Bring your hip waders or rain boots, if you have them (a few will be provided), gloves, snacks to share, and join us in getting your hands wet!

After our work in the pond, join us in our outdoor kitchen for a snack, prepared in our solar ovens by Kerry Hughes.

Brett Stephens is co-owner/project manager of San Francisco Landscapes. He is certified in permaculture design, a Bay-Friendly professional, ARCSA accredited professional, and a long-time volunteer at Alemany Farm.
