A few weeks ago I was enjoying an afternoon of cuisine-tasting and booze-imbibing in the Hayes Valley area of town. Excellent sushi at Otoro and special spirits at Marlena's bar. Ambling up Octavia blvd I was elated to see long stretch of community gardens interrupted only by Lily Street.

And this is only a few blocks away from the former-freeway-exit-turned-farm, the Hayes Valley Farm. I will be taking photos and plan to do a separate entry on this great project.
I can't wait to volunteer and take advantage of the many activities they offer...including on May 18th, a Farm Film night featuring "DIRT!", a flick on the importance of soil narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis.
