July 16th, 2016

7.7.16-GGF_image1On June 23rd and July 7th CommunityGrows took their summer partners and youth to Green Gulch Farm. On June 23rd the Village Project and the Buchanan YMCA and on July 7th Hayward Rec Connect and Booker T. Washington youth got to go to Green Gulch thanks to CommunityGrows. Some of the highlights were eating Sorrel leaves with honey, looking at the bees, eating plums from the trees, and raspberries from the bushes, smelling lavender, mint and lemon verbena.

They got to see a blue heron standing just ten feet away from them before it flew off. They got to pet a horse grazing in the field too. 7.7.16-GGF_131814_1468004768996A highlight was putting their feet in the ocean at Muir Beach. 7.7.16-GGF-HRec_134907_1468004728392Two great trips and one more this summer.7.7.16-GGF-HRec_135053_1468004727432
