Sweet Wheel Farms and the Santa Barbara Agriculture and Farm Education Foundation are the leaseholders of the 6.83 acres of dry farming owned by the Carpinteria Unified School District. They have said publicly that they will sell the property this November. We hope to keep this land farming highlighting food justice, organic farming, especially dry farming techniques and promoting farm worker housing and rights coupled with a nonprofit that promotes shared tools and large equipment for local grain farmers in Santa Barbara County.
We will be presenting our view of the farm with an expert in public housing Frank Thompson this Wednesday at the Summerland Citizens Meeting from 730 until 815. June Pujo is our first district representative working on permitting from Das William’s office.
Our full one hour press conference will be on May 11th at the farm at 11 am. There will be experts in public housing, food security as well as a vision for the farm property and more information.
