Summer crops included tomatoes, squash (yellow and zucchini), strawberries, collard, kohlrabi, kale, arugula, basil, thyme, oregano, chives, potatoes, carrots, beans (many varieties), chard, onion, garlic, and artichoke. A few of the gardens also had existing fruit trees- plum, peach, apple -which were also part of the harvest.

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.
