Other events in 2017

In January we started off our 50th year with a 50th Anniversary Kick Off Mixer at the Ecological Farming Conference, taking place at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove.
where we heard from  from CASFS Director Daniel Press, Garden Manager Orin Martin, Assistant Farm Garden Manager Kellee Matsushita, and other CASFS luminaries. Jim Leap was honored for his many contributions to the program through the years.

Check the CASFS online calendar for more 50th Anniversary events, including Alumni Weekend special tours, the Spring Plant Sale with a 50th Anniversary theme, and more! We'll be adding events throughout the year, so check back often.
