Gleaning at Green Gulch Farm, October 14

Saturday, October 14, 1:30 – 3 pm

Please join us at Green Gulch Farm to glean vegetables from the fields that will be donated to local non-profits such as the SF-Marin Food Bank, Poor Magazine, Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy, Zen Hospice, and Martin de Porres in SF.

We’ll begin the day with a welcoming circle at the farm altar. Gleaning is a traditional final harvest of agricultural fields that is given to those without access to land. It’s a wonderful opportunity to make a gift of one’s labor while enjoying beloved community in a beautiful contemplative setting along the coast. Please bring gloves, hats, water bottles, sunscreen, and anything else that you’ll need to be comfortable in variable weather. Closed-toe shoes recommended. Children and elders warmly welcome! Please park in the outermost parking lot at the bottom of the drive—and consider car-pooling. The address for Green Gulch Farm is 1601 Shoreline Hwy, Muir Beach, CA 94965. Please RSVP and address any questions to farm manager, Qayyum Johnson, at farm@sfzc.org.
