Finally catching up on the blog – its been a crazy last few weeks literally glued to our computer screens. But we’re making progress!
Here are some photos of our visit at Hayes Valley Farm – a 2.5 acre community and educational farm in the middle of San Francisco. The farm is located on an old freeway on-ramp and when you step on the farm you can still see the where the roadway once was – although, its now covered with bee hives, lots of veggies, and even a clay pizza oven!
Anyways, we had a delightful day with Lindsey and Booka, two educators at Hayes Valley, as well as all the wonderful kids. After learning about different plant parts, the group went out on a garden walk to forage for their snack. Afterwards, the kids enjoyed farm fresh “Garden on a cracker” – which included everything from cherry tomatoes and strawberries to rainbow chard and kale (many veggies Andrew and I wouldn’t have imagined eating as kids) all squeezed onto a rice cracker. Add a little agave nectar to make it stick and waalaa, “Garden on a cracker!”
Without further ado, adorable photos…thanks to Hayes Valley, the educators, and the wonderful parents and kids!
