2 FRESH COMMUNITY EVENTS in SUNSET – May 31st + June 10th

Peace everyone-

A central goal of our CSA is to build community, and what better way to do this than to connect at fun and positive community events?

My name is Gus and I’m one of the Core Group members with the CSA for the past several years, and I also work with the Center for Family Life, which is a huge social service organization here in Sunset. There are 2 events about food that I would love you all to be at or to spread the word about.

Saturday May 31st = 64th Street Community Garden Party
Free Food, prizes, learn about the garden, and meet other positive people in your community.

Tuesday June 10th = Food Justice Symposium

Gus
