Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden
1800 Ignacio Boulevard, Novato [MAP]
Our Farm offers an excellent opportunity to learn some of the basics of organic gardening. Volunteering here you can learn about how to harvest a multitude of crops at peak ripeness, prepare soil for transplanting and seeding, how to identify weeds and how to precision weed for timely and efficicient removal, how to harvest flowers at the proper stage, how to prick out seedlings and pot them up in the nursery and many more elements of organic gardening. Come to our volunteer training to get introduced to some of the tasks we'd love some volunteer help with each week. Another benefit to volunteering on the farm is being surrounded by the beauty of the farm, birds, insects and giving back to your community. You will also get to take home a plant from our nursery if you come to this training. Please RSVP to Farm Coordinator Amy Ridout at 415-720-2051.
