MARK YOUR CALENDAR, City Farm SLO's 2nd Annual Fall Harvest Festival is only 2 weeks away!


Check this article from the SLO Tribune:

"A new San Luis Obispo farm stand selling produce such as tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, peppers and pumpkins has opened to the public.

The stand, operated by the nonprofit City Farm SLO, will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays at the field site where produce is grown by tenant farmers and students from Pacific Beach Continuation High School’s twice-weekly Farm Class.

The produce also is used by the San Luis Coastal Unified School District for school lunches.

Vegetables are grown at City Farm SLO without using pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. The produce list includes corn, carrots, green beans, beets, peas and summer and winter squash, as well as certified organic turmeric and ginger.

In addition to fresh produce, the farm stand will allow community members to meet the farmers who grow their food: Corey Richmond, Teresa Lees, Josh Carmichael, Michael Huggins, and Javier Magana."


Twice weekly Farm classes for Pacific Beach High School continue with a variety of harvest activities: harvesting brussel sprouts and peppers, making sun-dried tomatoes, delivering surplus to the SLO Food Bank.
