Jason Mark, a co-manager of the 4-acre Alemany Farm in the heart of San Francisco, talks about the work party they are throwing Sunday to send a message to our global leaders that it’s time to get serious about the climate change crisis. On that day, Oct. 10, 2010, people all across the planet will be joining work parties as part of the largest-ever coordinated day of action for climate solutions. Alemany Farm, San Francisco’s largest urban food source, is a great example of sustainable living. What are you doing? Here are some suggestions:
