Placerville Event: Wakamatsu Open Farm Day

Owned by American River Conservancy, Wakamatsu farm is the site of the first Japanese colony in America. The property is cherished for its cultural history and natural resources. During Open Farm Days, explore the property at your own pace. Visit Okei-san's 1871 grave site. Tour the Native Plant Garden. See the Graner Farmhouse while enjoying the shade of the 150 year-old Keyaki tree. Take a trip around the lake on the 1.5-mile trail. Picnics are welcome. Docents will be on-site, ready to share information and answer questions. Open Farm Days are suitable for most ages and capabilities. Points of interest are mostly outdoors and reached by dirt trail or unpaved road over generally flat terrain.

At Wakamatsu Farm, seasonal produce and pre-orders for pick up are available from FogDog Farm.
