The following is an update letter from our own Urban Farm. This content is provided as a replacement for the presentation scheduled for the Cancelled HPNA March General Meeting.
Update from Sowing Solidarity Urban Farm
The plants are thriving at the farm! Walk by the farm on 23rd Street at Anita Way and you may see Gina Anderson tending to the crops as usual, all while wearing a mask and following precautionary practices mandated by the coronavirus pandemic. A few brief notes from her about the state of the farm:
The “green crops” are coming in: kale, lettuce, and chard.
Because of the pandemic the farm must adjust to a new model at this time. Bags of green produce will be for sale on a pre order basis for $10. Check the website at www.sowingsolidarity.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on availability, orders, payment, and pick-up options.
One goal this year is to support the South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership Food Bank located near the corner of 24th Street and Fruitridge Road. Contact information for donations and/or volunteering is email@example.com or call (916)428-5290.
Gina thanks all for the support and patience shown while the farm adjusts to meet the restrictions resulting from the current health crisis.
