Saturday, October 3 – Sunday October 4, 2009

This weekend the 22nd Annual Hoes Down Harvest Celebration in the Capay Valley (Yolo County) will promote agricultural arts and sustainable rural living through two fun-filled days of workshops and events.

Located within two hours of San Francisco and Sacramento’s busy metropolitan areas, the rural Capay Valley region is home to many small farms that supply Northern California’s families, restaurants, and neighborhood grocery stores with fresh organic produce. The Celebration will offer the public a special chance to enjoy rural life and deepen their understanding and connection to the local food system.
