Our Kickoff Event Takes Place July 23, 2011

Roots to Fruits, a new event series, seeks to raise awareness on our local food system, by offering a unique opportunity to sample the tastiest summer fruits which can thrive in various San Francisco micro-climates. Attendees will have an opportunity to pre-purchase fruit trees at this fun-filled family event, and enjoy the demos, contests and talks offered throughout the day. The first of three events, on July 23, 2011, will center around a Fruit Tasting Orchard, where anyone may sample the carefully selected summer fruits that thrive in the legendary San Francisco “fog belts” and “sun belts.”
