September 24: Work Day on the Farm
Please join us on Saturday, September 24th, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our next “Work Day on the Farm.”

We'll begin our habitat restoration along Pogonip Creek, which borders our farm field. For creek restoration, we'll teach you to recognize the native plants that need to be preserved and the invasive plants that need to be pulled.

Tasks will include:

  • Removing non-native plants and shrubs
  • Making piles for chipping
  • Hauling larger tree trimmings out for composting
  • Installing more fencing
  • Finishing our wheelchair path to the barn
  • Making owl boxes

Plan to stay for a relaxing lunch with new friends, too!

Volunteer
Middle schoolers get down to earth

On July 8th, Costanoa Commons was fortunate to welcome our first student volunteer group.

Middle schoolers and their chaperones from the Cornerstone Evangelical Baptist Church in San Francisco put in a full day's work on our new farm! They helped to plant nearly 100 sunflower seedlings in our garden, weeded and watered, and also helped dig a foundation for a deck extension.

We appreciate their hard work and can't wait for their sunflowers to bloom.

We hope the generous students from Cornerstone Church will come see us again!
The garden needs tools
If you have any unused tools, or know someone who might like to donate garden items, we can use more shovels, hand trowels, metal rakes, and non-leaky garden hoses.

Please contact Heidi at hcartan@costanoacommons.org if you have items to donate. Thank you!
