On Saturday, May 18th, we have a goal to harvest 100,000 pounds of cabbage grown by our very own San Antonio Food Bank at Mission San Juan Farm. If we meet our goal, 1.1 million servings of fresh, healthy cabbage will be available for people in need. We will meet as a group at the large stone sign just outside the grassy area. Gardens are located just off of the acequia trail, a short walk past the mission.
