about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA)
Visit the Jepson Prairie Organics facility, where the materials deposited in San Francisco's green bins are made into compost. We will tour the operations and find out how our paper plates, napkins, and food scraps become a valuable resource for farms and gardens.
Then farmer Nigel Walker will take us on a guided tour of nearby Eatwell Farm, where he enriches the soil with loads and loads of compost from Jepson Prairie. Eatwell Farm is certified organic and produces vegetables, herbs, lavender, and strawberries, sold at farmers markets and through a community-supported agriculture program.
The tour costs $25 and includes a delicious lunch made from farmers' market foods. Tickets are nonrefundable. We will leave and return to the Ferry Building in a comfortable bus.
There is no minimum age, but the tour is geared toward adults and not recommended for children under 12.
Meeting place: In front of the Ferry Building (San Francisco), south of the clock tower
Meeting time: Please arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 am. The bus leaves promptly at 9:00 am.
What to bring: Water, sun protection, sturdy walking shoes, clothes that can get dirty.
We will do our best to return by 5 pm, but traffic conditions can be unpredictable and we can't guarantee punctual arrival.
We sincerely thank our Farm Tour Sponsor, First National Bank of Northern California, for underwriting tour costs and Coach 21 for providing a discount on the bus charter fee.
