On Wednesday, August 12, Green Gulch Farm will be hosting families from Clara House. Clara House, a neighbor of City Center on Page Street, provides housing and services for families in transition, and Zen Center has been involved with them for many years.
Once a year we bring the parents and children to the farm for a tour, lunch and time at the beach. We usually leave around 9:30 or 10 and are back in the city by 4. We are looking for people who can offer rides to the families on that day. Once we get to Green Gulch, you are invited to spend as much or as little time with the children as you wish.
If you are interested in this, or have questions, please contact Jeffrey Schneider at 415.354.0379 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
