Hayes Valley Farm Announces First Harvest Festival


October 16 will be a Day to Celebrate Abundance and Heritage

Its time for the very first Hayes Valley Farm Harvest Festival. Join us for fun under the Harvest Sun, with youth activities, tours, special musical guests DJ Lamont and Tyler Matthew Smith, and of course pumpkins! Harvest Festival will begin Sunday, October 16th at 1:00 pm and continue until 5:00 pm.

Enjoy food crafting at the earth oven, special nature awareness workshops, arts and crafts for all ages, a handmade musical instrument factory, face-painting and a honey sale from our hardworking urban bees. This is a family-friendly day that will honor our land, celebrate our diverse web of community and feature locally-grown foods that nourish our spirit and inspire us to grow it local!

The farm has enjoyed a robust growing season, and will host skill shares on making kale chips, simple homemade breads, and fresh-creamed butter. Farmers will give tours throughout the day, and volunteers are encouraged to show up for the regular flipping of compost and planting that takes place every Sunday on Mulch Mountain in the heart of the farm.

Cultures all over the world celebrate the harvest to welcome the colorful new season and give thanks to the transition of abundance. In India, communities gather to dance and give thanks by lighting a bonfire and offering gifts of popcorn, peanuts and sweets. Jews build a sukkah from natural elements and decorate it with fruits and wheat. Hayes Valley Farm invites friends and neighbors young and old, to enjoy a mix of diverse traditions at the farm on Sunday, October 16. Bring your friends and family!
