Let's start off our new group the right way, with an introductory evening in one of Benicia's lesser-known, but beautiful parks. Bring food to munch on if you like. I'll bring a snack for everyone. I'll also bring along a tested ancient drought watering system that was tested in two other homesteading groups I belong to. It's cheap, simple and more effective than any of our testers had planned on. Francesca Terrace Park is at the end of Hillcrest Avenue. From East 2nd Street, turn onto Hillcrest (Hillcrest only runs one direction from E 2nd), then travel down Hillcrest to the end. There is a parking lot to park in.
