About Francis River

Francis River is a farmer, educator, and advocate for building communities and friendship. He works fluidly across a wide variety of sustainable practices, growing food, making clothes, pottery, and landscape design. He is currently the farm manager at GrowGood Urban Farm, a 1.5 acre organic farm that supports the Bell Homeless Shelter, and co-founder of My Friends Farm, a small-scale urban farm that focuses on building radical, transformative and supportive friendships by providing food and resources for the Los Angeles community.


This workshop focuses on building and maintaining healthy gardens. Participants will gain knowledge of tools, soil preparation, planting, watering techniques, and natural plant fertilizers. Together with Francis, patrons of this workshop will get their hands dirty and gain experience in the field as well as help to provide food to the Bell Homeless shelter. All proceeds donated to GrowGood.
