Yes, there still are farms in Silicon Valley!
For those of us who weren't around when the Valley was largely an agricultural community, this is a pleasant surprise.
In fact, there is an 11-acre organic farm operating in the heart of the high tech capital of the world, just minutes away from iconic tech giants like Apple, Google, Yahoo, eBay, HP, Facebook, and others.
This event is one a series of Saturday visits to Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale throughout the spring, summer and fall.
There is no admission fee.
Full Circle Farm is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote sustainable organic farming and gardening. The farm supports many educational initiatives geared towards young people.
Full Circle Farm features a community garden that is maintained and supported by volunteers.
Our trips will include some time volunteering in the community garden. This could mean soil preparation, planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and other farming-related duties.
Please bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and snacks. Please wear comfortable work clothes. You can also bring a pair of gardening gloves. Also, bring plastic bags to pack veggies you may want to take home.
We expect to be done about in about an hour and a half to two hours after starting.
This is an ideal event for meetup members who are interested in sustainability, gardening, organic farming and social entrepreneurship -- or green issues in general.
