***Please note, no audio from 00:52 to 02:18*** Open Make is a monthly program at the Exploratorium, in collaboration with Make Magazine and Pixar Animation Studios, to highlight the tools, techniques, and ingenuity of local makers. As part of this program, makers from the Bay Area will be highlighted to share their work with the public, and Dale Dougherty, founder and editor of Make Magazine will interview Featured Makers in the McBean theater. Join us for live webcasts of the interviews to see what these makers are up to! Hayes Valley Farm is a community-run farm on a former freeway
in the middle of San Francisco. The land was slated for condo
development but the plan was put off when the economy slumped.
Out of the ashes of that dream arose a utopia of a different sort; a
suspended reality where fruit trees are grown on what was once a
freeway on-ramp choked with cars. Now there are flowers growing
out of the double yellow lines, and constant opportunities for
children and adults to learn how to grow food and to get dirty doing
it. Although the farm has only an "interim use" permit, meaning
that it can't last forever, farmers Zoey Kroll and Jay Rosenberg
know that the enduring harvest of this project--the truth that even
the most outlandish-sounding things are possible if we make them
so--will far outlive the farm itself.
