From page A3 | September 27, 2013 |

A pomegranate harvest, a visit to chicken coops and orchard activities are the highlights of a tour Sunday of FARM 2.6 west of Davis.

The “Chicken Coop to Orchard” event is part of the Yolo Farm to Every Fork event series, highlighting farm contributions and food security issues in the region.

Visitors can learn how to set up a coop to orchard system at the farm on County Road 95, a half-mile north of Road 31 (Covell Boulevard) between 10 a.m. to noon Sunday.

Guests will act as farmers for a morning and help fertilize all 70 of FARM 2.6’s fruit trees using one dozen chickens. The event will close with a pomegranate harvest and, in this farm’s tradition, fruit will be donated to low-income families. Volunteers also can take home pomegranates.

“We welcome visitors to the farm to enjoy the fresh air, learn a little bit about farming and give back to the community with a harvest activity,” said farmer Robyn Waxman.

Added Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, “This is a fun event for families, certainly anyone who is interested in raising chickens, and volunteers who want to see how different parts of a farm relate to one another in a small food system.”
