February 10 2018, 9:00 A.M. City Farm SLO Work Party

Join us for our Valentine’s month workday to help us lovingly plant new fruit trees & perennial crops in the food forest beds.

In the food forest we’ll show how to combine bare root fruit trees with an understory of edible vines, herbs, flowers, and bulbs to create a no-till, year-round food production garden. We’ll also install drip irrigation, mulching, and gopher protection.

Families (All ages) welcome, please bring gloves and a water bottle. Wear protective shoes, dress for varying winter weather (cold, wet, to full sun) and enjoy a day on the farm.

Last month’s work party succeeded in completing our 330 foot-long seven foot high deer fence.  (For a full report, see
