Schools Out, Head to Bayer

Summer at Bayer

Our farm and community hub in the heart of Roseland blooms in the summertime in more ways than one! Volunteer with our summer lunch program, feast with neighbors at a potluck, drop-in for a workday in the organic garden, or bring your child to read and play in nature at iRead Outside. 

What you can expect during Summer at Bayer: 

  • Visit Bayer Farm: Explore our organic teaching garden, maintained by our staff and volunteers. Learn how to garden yourself at our volunteer workdays!
  • iRead Outside: Read, explore, play, and dream in the garden! Children 5 and under and their families are invited to join us free reading sessions throughout the summer.
  • Free Summer Lunch: Starting in June and running through August, in partnership with Redwood Empire Food Bank, we distribute free lunch for youth 18 and younger. Monday through Friday. 12pm to 1pm. You are encouraged to arrive early, or stay after lunch, for nature games, playing, and fun on the farm.
