Title: Monthly Volunteer Work Day at the School Farm
START DATE: Saturday July 13
TIME: 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location Details:
The School Farm is located next to the athletic field at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts and the Academy of Arts and Sciences - 555 Portola Dr. San Francisco. Enter the campus via O'Shaughnessy Blvd @ Portola. Close to 36, 44, 48, and 52 Muni lines. From the parking area on O'Shaughnessy, walk down the hill to the right towards the athletic field. We'll be on the farm the behind the bleachers across the field. See ya there!
Event Type: Other
School is out but the School Farm is in full effect! The rows are busting out with cabbage, kale, chard, lettuce, tomatoes, squash, corn, quinoa, and more. As always crops need tending, seeds need starting, weeds need pulling, and we also have lots of big clean ups going on to tidy up the space and properly store farm equipment. We may even be doing some light construction of shelving, a place for everything and everything in it's place. Other activities might include clearing more cotoneaster along the fence to plant fruit trees and add soil, planting and mounding up soil in the native border, and mulching pathways with wood chips.

Arizmendi pastries and tea will be provided, and feel free to bring a snack, water, and anything else you need to get down and dirty (even a favorite old cassette for the solar power tape player). It's a great chance to come visit and help out or just hang on the farm and soak up the summer rays.
