Check out some photos of gay goats!

The last two Homo Homestead tours have been amazing!

Thanks so much for all who came to the Berkeley tour on March 23rd.  Check out these photos that Edie Irons took of the day.  Jonah of the Fairview House, Jim of Green Faerie and Tanya of the Coop were excellent hosts and i can thank them enough.

I don't have any personal photos of the DirtStar HomoHomstead tour but check out the Free Farm blog for some photos of their work.  It was a great afternoon spent mainly at the Free Farm with a little bit of helping out and harvesting.

Looking forward to the next one - East Oakland, Sunday August 1st!

Western Addition, The Fillmore, Hayes Valley...
The names and borders of this area are ever changing and ever impacted by the whims of the wealthy and powerful in San Francisco. But it's rich history and robust resistance to marginalization and complete gentrification is alive and thriving.  We will check out how some local queers are continuing those roots of resistance through their community DIRT PROJECTS!  From Free Farms to Community Gardens - we will catch a glimpse of queers in dirty revolutionary action.

Come check out the new Free Farm!  We will be getting out hands dirty by helping the Free Farm with some of their projects.
The Free Farm is an urban farm on the corner of Gough and Eddy Streets in San Francisco, CA. Their goal is to grow organic produce, foster garden education, and build community. The food grown is offered to the community for free in an effort to combat hunger, aid health and nutrition, and increase resource sharing and care for one another.  It is also connected to the Free Farm Stand at Parque de los Ninos.
