This coming Sunday, April 10th, I will be hosting an event (featuring SF Supervisor Eric Mar) at 3:30pm at the Green Festival:
"Getting Your Hands Dirty in Urban Farming"
Interested in getting your hands dirty in urban agriculture? Hear representatives from SF’s 3 largest farms share the why, when, and how to engage in urban farming projects. Then, after a sneak peak at the documentary In Search of Good Food, join the discussion on government’s role and how we can make agriculture thrive in the city.
The Green Festival is on April 9th –10th at the Concourse Exhibition Center at 635 8th Street (at Brannan Street) in San Francisco. Seven stages and pavilions give attendees a chance to be engaged by 125 local experts and nationally-renowned speakers and visionaries in lectures, panels and workshops. Keynote presenters include Amy Goodman, John Perkins, Zoe Weil, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Sylvia Mendez, Mark Hertsgaard and Dr. Sharif Abdullah.
