SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County are introducing a tour of City Farm SLO to volunteer mentors and their mentees.  

The morning will kick off at 10 a.m. with planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, and then tasting the vegetables grown on the farm. The attendees —volunteer mentors (“Bigs”) and their mentees (“Littles”) and the Littles’ families — will have lunch after participating in the farm’s fun activities.  

This event is sponsored by the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors.  


Interim Executive Director, Caity McCardell, said, “This event is a unique opportunity for Bigs and Littles and their families in our programs to experience a city farm, learn about planting seeds, and see the different elements of our local agriculture. We look forward to getting out in the sunshine, digging in the dirt, and tasting some delicious produce.”
