Over the past year, our family has been working hard to restore a small tree farm off Kearney Ave and to turn this parcel of land into a small organic vegetable farm. We have put hours of labor, money and time to turn what had been previously used as a dumping ground into a plot of land that could be used for growing vegetables and raising chickens. We had hopes to bring these goods to the farmers markets for 2017-2018 season.
On April 21, 2017 a brush fire rapidly spread through our area of Golden Gate Estates. While we did not lose as much as some due to this fire, we did lose our well house, pressure tank, electrical boxes, irrigation timers, valves, piping and filters for the whole property, along with the only spicket which we had to access the well water. We had been in the middle of restoring the old irrigation system and had just installed the new equipment in February 2017. All of the new equipment had been in the well house which was completely consumed by the fire. We have no insurance. We are asking for any amount of monetary donations or used equipment to help us restore what the fire destroyed so we can get water to the fields which will allow us to grow our crops. Many, many thanks.
