On Saturday, December 17th, in celebration of our farm’s new digs on the corner of 13th Street and Broadway, we are inviting neighborhood friends and local San Diego families to take part in SMARTS Farm’s Holiday Open House. Join us for a morning filled with holiday horticulture and winter wreath making alongside a line up of family-oriented festivities and education. The event is open to the public and is free to attend, with a $5 suggested donation for adult participation.
