On 10/10/10, over 7,000 communities in 188 countries came together for a day of unity, collaboration, and grassroots climate action. Some of us worked at Hayes Valley Farm, some of us went on an urban farming bike tour, while others planted gardens or got to work in ways that showed we have the power to fight the effects of climate change.
Check out this short video from 350.org that brings together some of the events from that day. This is the stuff we are working towards and these are the people who care.

As most of you know, 350.org is organizing a global work party on 10/10/10 (this Sunday) and Ride350 would like to invite you on an Urban Farming Bike Crawl. The point of this day is to do something that will help deal with global warming in your city or community.
This is an unofficial Ride350 event since it was all organized by Kitchen Garden SF, the Wigg Party, and will be led by the venerable Kevin Bayuk. We're starting in GG Park at the Apple Tree (across Kezar from McLaren Lodge, near the Panhandle) at 10:30 am. Then we'll ride the Wiggle to the Free Farm Stand in the Mission. Next we will check out some amazing Sidewalk Gardens in SOMA/Potrero Hill followed by a jaunt to the permaculture farm on 18th and Rhode Island. We'll finish up at Hayes Valley Farm at 1:30.
Hayes Valley Farm will then host a Kitchen Garden Fair including workshops, demos, and DIY worm bins. All followed by an after-party that includes vendors, food, and music. What more could you ask for a Sunday Funday!
We have set up an Eventbrite registration so we can tell organizers how many people to expect. Tickets are free and it just gives us a headcount. Please follow this link to register: http://urbanfarmingbikecrawl.eventbrite.com
