Enjoy a day of farm tours, a pumpkin patch, bean winnowing workshops, and tomato tastings. Buy produce directly from the AgPark’s eight small-scale organic farmers who usually sell at farmers’ markets, through CSA subscriptions, and to local restaurants and stores. This diverse group of farmers grows traditional varieties of herbs and vegetables from India, Iran, Korea, and Ethiopia, plus heirloom tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and lovely flowers. Fun for kids includes wildflower seed packet making, corn husk doll crafts, and face painting. Niles Pie Company and other eateries offer food for sale, and adults can sip local wine and beer from Fenestra Winery and JP DasBrew. The Sunol AgPark is a thriving 18-acre organic farm next to the historic Sunol Water Temple. Suggested donation: $5 for adults; free for children. Attendees are encouraged to bring water bottles and strollers, trikes, bikes, and wagons to explore the AgPark and festival. Info: here or 510.526.1793 ext. 5
