Crops ripening!

All 18 acres of City Farm are now under cultivation and producing bumper crops for our subtenants: Redbarn Farms, Dacite Farm, Carmichael Environmental and Corey Richmond.

This billboard sign will go up along the Freeway during the second week of September.   We’ll be selling produce at the Pergola grown by our four subtenant farmers and Pacific Beach High School Farm Class students Wednesdays 3-6 p.m. . Stay tuned for grand opening!

School’s On!

After a brief summer recess, Pacific Beach High School’s Farm Class has resumed its fifth year of twice weekly classes at City Farm where students plant, cultivate, harvest, cook, and enjoy eating the fruits of their labor.  The PREPARE Therapeutic Horticulture class returns to its weekly farm program during the first week of September.
