San Francisco, California

We need your help!
Join us at the GrowHaus as we install a 150 sq ft tropical permaculture demonstration garden, the first of several permaculture demo beds to house a guild of tropical perennials. Many other tasks will be undertaken, specifics still TBD. Tours of the GrowHaus, including its hydroponic and aquaponic systems, will be conducted, and we'll have a sit down lunch in the 'Growasis' section at noon.
About the GrowHaus:
The GrowHaus is based in an historic 20,000 square-foot greenhouse. We're currently using the space to grow fresh healthy greens and teach about healthy living. We also continue to renovate more of our space to accommodate increased food production, educational facilities, and a local food distribution network.
Here at The GrowHaus, we envision a world where all communities have the means to nourish themselves. Our mission is to create a community-driven, neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for food access, urban agriculture, education and job training.
Note that the GrowHaus *is* a greenhouse and it gets hot inside. Bring gloves, sunscreen and plenty of water, along with a hat and sun-suitable clothing.
Also note - we can use extra shovels on this one, so please bring if available!
