Getting my hands dirty at Hayes Valley Farm!

April 15, 2011

We finally have longer, sunnier days here in the bay area, yay! So I made it a point to start getting some gardening experience this spring at a pretty unique urban farm in San Francisco. The 2.2 acre farm sits on what used to be a vacant lot after the biggest earthquake in recent decades.

I thought I’d start learning at Hayes Valley Farm, an urban garden with a neat history of almost literally “rising from the ashes.” Eventually I’d like to set up my own bin in my flat, if you have any ideas please let me know. I love what Victory Gardens San Diego does, installing gardens in their homes.

I expect to be at the farm Saturday morning ’round 10 or so for the Refresh event, uniting the city’s gardening and wellness communities. I’ll be talking ’bout smoothies with a bike-powered smoothie demo. If you haven’t heard, places like Recology will be giving away free compost and there will be all sorts of things going on from herb walks to life coaching – a fun day to stop by and cruise around the hood.

Watch the video on your full screen to enjoy it.

    Awesome! I love that you’ve started doing video. I just started a rookie garden last weekend. I can’t wait to see what it produces. You were in my dream last night. Check out my grandma blog to read about it. Miss you! xoxo, B
