APIQWTC Volunteers! Those that love being outdoors with your hands in the soil! Looking for a good reason to wear those hiking boots, grubby pants and hat? Want to see what your food looked like before it was in neat rows at the farmers market?
Come volunteer with your community and the greater community at Alemany Farm, walking distance from the Glen Park Bart Station.
Please let me know if you plan to attend! I will need you to sign a waiver prior to event.
