Fresh SPIN Farm and the UC Davis Student Farm

We visited Fresh SPIN Farms back in February to learn more about their farm and to check out their Buddha's hand citrus tree! Cat Callaway, the farm manager, showed us around and shared the principles of SPIN farming. They have a CSA and hope to have more events on the farm. Check out their website for more info:  www.freshspinfarm.com

We also spoke with Edwina King, a graduate student who works at the UC Davis Student Farm, to find out what's happening as they transition from winter to spring crops. If you would like to volunteer or intern on the student farm you can! Just go and talk to the folks working at the farm, they are out there Monday-Friday from 8am-12pm. Check out their website to learn more: www.asi.ucdavis.edu/sf.
