San Francisco's Alemany Farm

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Right In The Middle Of San Francisco!

Living in a city can sometimes get a little claustrophobic, and when that happens the best thing to do is go to the country and get your hands dirty (and I mean in some real soil, not Muni bus stop grime).  Since “going to the country” is easier said than done, urban farms are the perfect place to get some fresh air (even if it’s the same air you breathe every other day, I promise it will feel different).  And so I present: Alemany Farm.  I went there once for a Harvest Festival/Hay Ride and it was pretty rad.  The 4.5-acre organic farm in Southeast San Francisco runs in part with the help of volunteers, or 'œFriends of Alemany Farm.'  That could be you!

The farm runs all sorts of great programs and has an amazing mission (read more here and here), plus regular community workdays that you can show up for anytime.  All ages and experience levels are welcome and you can participate as much or as little, for as much or as little time, as you want.  How easy is that?  This weekend they’re planting trees, so if you feel so inclined, go along and help oxygenate the planet!

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
