Herb Garden Event & Free Music Show Sunday

Hello ~

To start, there are 2 things on Sunday, which I encourage you to attend:

First, there's a workday at Alemany Farm from 12-5pm. Within that workday (3-5pm) - we are celebrating the installation of our new medicinal herb garden and water catchment system. Organic Gardening magazine is providing refreshments - BBQ style - and they are doing a photo shoot. There will even be a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Later that day... there is a FREE music show at Grant & Green, starting at 8pm. There will be a medley of songs from Indianna Hale, The Blank Tapes, Sleepy Todd, Honey.Moon.Tree, and Your 33 Black Angels (touring from NY)... maybe some Slow Motion Cowboys (w/ Pete from Trainwreck Riders) if there's time. This place is in North Beach, which I know is a trek, but it should be worth it. Hope to see you there.

Beyond this Sunday, a non-uniform summary of upcoming events:

Farm - Alemany Farm's community workdays continue to be the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month, and the Saturdays in between...
