    • Growing Leaders through the communal ethic of the barn-raising that encourages people to play an active role in decision-making.

      Detailed description with clear call to action to get involved! Looking forward to joining their work party one day soon. What a powerful idea to end violence.

      Had great time going to Alemany Farm this weekend for its community workday. I was happily welcomed and given a tour of the farm along with some parents and their toddlers. More people showed up as the day progressed and they were all very friendly and helpful. We started off by learning about the different plants and herbs along with different techniques they use to cultivate them. I started off weeding, then went on to plant lettuce, help build the compost, and lay out new soil for more lettuce and crops. Don’t forget snacks and some water! At the end of the day everyone got to split up the harvest from the day. I got a good amount of lettuce, kale, and cherries. It was fun getting out in the sun, getting dirty, and meeting people that want to learn more about farming and want to help their community! Can’t wait to do it again in the future. Especially when the strawberries I worked on start to be in full bloom. 😀
