MILESTONE REPORT TO SLO CITY COUNCIL
At the invitation of the City Council, on March 5, City Farm President, Steven Marx, accompanied by two Board Members, presented a slideshow and talk to accompany our five-year milestone report.
Weather conditions during February and early March again drove most Pacific Beach HS Farm classes indoors. There students worked together to build an owl box to help with pest control.
On the one day farm work could proceed, they mounted the box on the pergola, had a lesson on fruit tree dormant spraying and pruning, and prepared a meal from what was available in the garden.
SATURDAY WORK PARTY
The wet weather that forced cancellation of last month's work party continues to make us adapt. March 9 will still be too wet, but we plan on hosting a group of volunteers from LOVESLO on March 16, conditions permitting. Please join the fun!
Most of the work of our non-profit organizations is performed by volunteers, in particular by our working Board of Directors. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
CITY FARM SLO GOES SOLAR - Update
Plans have been submitted and construction awaits City permit and a break in the weather.
On February 5, City Farm SLO signed an agreement with the local company SLO Circuit Electrical to install an array of Solar Panels along our southern margin and freeway frontage.
This project is supported by donations from SLO Circuit, Indpendent Electric Supply which is donating the PV modules, and private contributions through the Community Foundation of San Luis Obispo.
RE-BRANDING & NEW WEBSITE - Update
Welcome to the new website! Thanks to Danielle for the amazing work that's gone into it. There are still a few kinks to work out to make it fully functional. We'd appreciate your feedback and suggestions at email@example.com.
By next month we expect it to be fully operational, including ability to generate these monthly newsletters.
