Aunt Em's Urban Inn+Farm

Location:  San Francisco, CA

Day Job:  Designer/Writer

The Digs:  Backyard

Crops:  Apples, Basil, Blueberries, Bok-choy, Green beans, Kale, Lavender, Lemons, Lettuce, Mint, Mustard Greens, Oregano, Potatoes, Rosemary, Squash, Strawberries, Thyme, Tomatoes, Jerusalem Artichokes, chervil, mache, arugula, parsley, marjoram, many kinds of mint, bay, tarragon.

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  My thought was to have an Inn connected to an Urban Farm to educate the many tourists who come to San Francisco on the issues of sustainable agriculture. We teach our guests about recycling, how we are organic, do compost, encourage beneficial insects and watch with awe the many wonders that unfold on our small 25’ X 25’ plot.

    I like how you call the garbage landfill.

    Hello! Yes, it's so simple an idea. I feel I've already made an impact. I like to think I'm planting a seed of change that people take back with them. So many visitors are surprised at how little we throw into the bin marked "landfill" (we don't call it "garbage" anymore!) Check out more about us: www.emsinn.com

    Hi! I would love to be friends. I love the reason why you teach tourists about Mother Earth and how important it is to protect her!
