PD's Monthly Workshop-Workday
Saturday, May 11, 2013
12:00 PM-4:00 PM
Cost: FREE

Join Planet Drum Foundation staff, friends, and family for our monthly Workshop-Workday to continue community engagement in place-based projects in San Francisco. This month we will be at ECO-SF's School Farm Project nestled under Twin Peaks, just above the Glen Canyon open space.

Joined by the ECO-SF team and community volunteers, we will learn what it takes to run an urban farm: the project's history and story, permaculture methods for farming success, the challenges, and much more.
