Planting Days at the Park

Planting Days at the Park 2016The greenhouse is bursting with beautiful strong healthy plants!
Come join us for our monthly planting days at the Community Park. These vibrant greens will soon turn into ripe garden veggies that support our Park to Plate Program for low-income families and community kitchens, and will help make our community more food secure and sustainable. If you love seeing fresh organic local veggies at our farmers markets, on our plates, and in the hands of others, please support the SoHum Farm by getting down and dirty with sowing, transplanting and harvesting at the park during the season. For monthly updates, check our facebook page or call (707) 923-2928. We hope to see you there!

PAST EVENTS

Jogging Club

Wednesdays

9:30 am

Free!

Walking and jogging groups meet at the Community Park in the Kimtu parking lot (map) for a short walk or jog on the trails every Wednesday morning at 9:30. These exercise groups are designed for people of all ability levels, and all are welcome to participate.

Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month is dedicated to our Walking Club, which meets for a relaxed and scenic 1 mile walk – a great introduction for those who are beginning walkers. This is a great opportunity to view the various bird and wildlife activity within the park.

The Jogging Club offers a more rigorous workout, and is held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday morning. The run typically proceeds along a beautiful and picturesque 2 mile trail through the interior of the park. This workout is ideal for beginning or advanced runners and can be tailored to each individual’s abilities.

All are welcome!
