Placerville Event: Wakamatsu Open Farm Days – First & Third Saturdays, September through November 10am-2pm
Wakamatsu Open Farm Day: First & Third Saturdays, September through November 10am-2pm
Site of the first Japanese colony in America, your self-guided walking tour of Wakamatsu Farm may include a stroll to Okei-san’s 1871 gravesite and the grounds surrounding Charles Graner's original 1850’s farmhouse. Take a trip around the lake on the 1.5-mile wheelchair-accessible trail, experience our NEW Nature Play Space or take a walk through the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden. Bring a picnic and chair to sit and relax. Volunteer docents will be on site to share information and answer questions about Wakamatsu Farm's human and natural history.
Suitable for all ages and capabilities, points of interest are outdoors reached by dirt trail or unpaved road over generally flat terrain. Seasonal produce and farm products will be available for purchase from FogDog Farm and Free Hand Farm, on site. If all goes as planned on September 5, we will also be honored by a visit from the newly appointed Consul General of Japan in San Francisco, Mr. Toru Maeda. Aji Japanese Bistro will offer pre-packaged bento boxes for purchase. FogDog Farm will also have organic produce and freshly baked bread for sale. How exciting!
All participants are required to wear a face covering if they are in close proximity to other visitors to the Farm, so please come prepared. Please do not come to the Farm if you have a fever over 100 degrees or are experiencing flu or cold-like symptoms. Amenities are limited, so plan for rugged outdoor leisure. Please manage your own trash and leave the land better than you found it.
Steady rain or temperatures over 100 degrees will cancel. Check ARC’s event calendar for updates. Suggested Donation: $10 per vehicle. Please bring exact change or checks for donations. Buses and large vans are $5 per person. All proceeds directly benefit Wakamatsu Farm. For private tours, please call 530-621-1224. Sign-ups at https://app.donorview.com/o4Kz9
