We didn’t have time to enter the Kale Cook-off contest, but I’m happy to report that our very own fashionable urban free farmer Finn sashayed down the catwalk (in the same outfit she wore at The Free Farm) . . . and was named a winner at the Garden Chic Fashion Show!

Lest you think there are only female Getup grads (we gals just have the good taste to select The Free Farm as our project site!), here are some notable male Getup grads at the party:

Kevin was Lynn’s neighbor until she moved closer to The Free Farm this year. See this video of SF renter Kevin in his urban farm at http://ryanishungry.com/2007/05/26/kevin-bayuk-urban-permaculture/
