Reaping the harvest!

“You’re not growing vegetables, you’re growing children!”

-Lutheran Volunteer Corp intern upon visiting the Holy Innocents Garden

On that theme, the children of Holy Innocents will be replanting their garden on 10-10-10, as part of a global day of action!

And… here’s a photo from Lori Goulet.  Her son is showing off the harvest from St. Clare’s in Pleasanton…

Plants in the Ground at the Sanctuary Shelter

Check out the progress we’ve made at the Sanctuary Shelter at Howard and 8th!

We’ve got broccoli, tomatoes, kale, squash, and lettuce in the ground now.
Last week’s workday had clients, employees, volunteers, and myself (an employee of Cultivate Diocal) all working together to grow food at the Sanctuary Shelter garden.
At every Thursday workday we continue to build into our vision of food growing and community building in an otherwise unused space in San Francisco.

Sacred Heart Visits Free Farm!

25 incoming freshmen and 2 of their teachers from our neighbors at Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep visited the Free Farm today. They did a tremendous service, cleaning up trash, weeding, potting up kale and mustard seedlings, and turning the compost pile.  The students were from a summer Health and Nutrition Class.  We closed the day (and their course) by silently walking the labyrinth, reflecting on a healthy intention for the rest of the summer.  This summer 3 more groups from Sacred Heart will visit us, we can’t wait!
