I am also on Facebook (Tree Rubenstein) and so is the  Free Farm Stand

I live at 16th and South Van Ness and have an unused, fenced 10 x 15 garden ready to plant. I would give daily access to someone who simply wants a space to cultivate. pat 716-352-0287.

Awesome work. I was one of the occupiers of the abandoned building behind your farm and I was so inspired by what you do! I will be emailing soon to find out more on how I can help the free farm.

Can anyone show up for free food? and When would one do that?  I’m unemployed and desperate.
thanks Kevin.   [email protected]

How can I volunteer?

Is the Free Farm Stand still operating on Sundays from 1pm to 3pm at the Northeast corner of Parque de Ninos (a park in the Mission district between 22nd/23rd and Folsom/Treat?

Asking because don’t find that info on your website. Did find it posted by a reviewer on Yelp, but not certain of the accuracy of the Yelp review.

I’m disabled on crutches so I’d also like to know when I should arrive, as standing is often difficult for me and I don’t want to get knocked over in a press of customers.

Hope to hear back soon.

Sorry for being so late in responding. We don’t really have anyone keeping this website up to date. The stand opens at 12 noon and we give out numbers then and we start handing out produce at 1pm. If you are disabled you can talk to Laura or someone handing out numbers that you would like to go first and they will arrange that.
