"The future of life on this planet may depend on what we eat. Factory farmed junk food is the #1 cause of climate change." - Excerpt from Organic Consumers Association's "Food Agenda 2020: The Organic Alternative"

If you want to be part of reducing carbon emissions in your community and be part of the local urban agriculture movement, look no further- this workshop is for you!! You'll learn how to identify possible spaces for gardens in San Francisco, including city property, privately owned lots, school gardens, sidewalks and backyards. The pros and cons of each option will be explored. Workshop participants will venture out on bicycles for a rolling tour of innovative gardens implemented in such spaces and to meet the visionaries that created them. All participants should bring a bag lunch, water, and a bicycle.

The bicycle tour will end at Hayes Valley Farm at 1:30 PM. Workshop participants will then have the opportunity to get keyed into and play a crucial role in garden actions throughout the city organized by Kitchen Garden SF, including garden installations, maintenance and harvesting. Also planned at Hayes Valley Farm are afternoon workshops and a harvest party. The entire day's activities are part of the Global Environmental Work Party, day of action 10.10.10, organized by 350.org and local urban agriculture organizations.
