South Central Farm is the USA’s largest urban garden. Tilled by over 350 families, this 14-acre oasis provides food and green space for a self-sustaining community. As many of you have heard and read, the farm is at risk, as farmers face eviction threats. See it for yourself…come tour the farm and meet the people who have grown it. Stay for lunch from the farmer’s market stands.

Also at the farm on Sunday: Manifesto Workshop, $10. Write your own Manifesto! A fundraiser for the farm, with Haruko Tanaka & Matt Dunnerstick, beginning at 12:30pm.
