Rising Spring Work Party

Our fall pilot test with the Resilient Hubs Initiative continues! Thanks to funding from the Water Foundation and EBMUD, at Rising Spring Farm in El Sobrante, we will be installing a 5000 gallon rain barrel and if there is time, over flow tubes to a seasonal pond. We will also briefly  discuss rain water harvesting design and learn how to install a rain barrel properly. Please bring a water bottle,  sun hat, sturdy shoes and layers to prepare for the weather.

Rising Spring Farm owner Jessica Bates will also share successes in how this El Sobrante neighborhood has come together to build community resilience, from Crop Swaps to potlucks. It's a highly replicable model that will leave you wanting to organize your own Resiliency Hub in your own neighborhood!

Food will be served at the work party, and children are welcome!

Please rsvp & contact Jessica with any questions foodforestfarm.west@gmail.com or call/text 510 403 1344. An RSVP will get you the address.
