Help keep those path-breaking apprentices down on the Farm — by sharing in the many local and Bay Area Grow a Farmer events all focused on building residential cottages for those who come to study at the UCSC Center for Agroecology.
The romantic tents nestling along the tree-lined fence are about to become things of the past. In order to keep the on-site living quarters that allow this amazing program its intensity and effectiveness, money (yes, $$$) must be raised — $250,000 by June 2009.
You’ll find restaurants and other businesses involved in raising funds, by going to the handsome Grow a Farmer website. And then dig in!
Check back often during the next two months for more delicious details on this vigorous grass roots effort.
