Alemany Farm, SF

It started out as a one time 4 hour volunteer session at the Alemany Farm, now I go almost weekly. The farm is a 4.5 acre working farm nestled in between the 280 freeway and south side of Bernal Hill, open to all and run by an ever changing group of volunteers, it is a working model of city farming. And it is awesome.
For more info or to volunteer visit:
