SAN GERONIMO VALLEY PLANNING GROUP
FOREST KNOLLS FARM STAND!
Just got a phone call from an excited Jim Baum. He has a thumbs up from the County, a lease for the Forest Knolls Farm Stand (Yerion’s old gas station), the keys in his hand, is moving ahead full speed and said that he will be opening in a few weeks. As most of you know, Jim is our local “King of Organic Produce” and has been selling fine organic produce in Woodacre and San Geronimo for ten years. Now he and his business have a HOME!
When Jim approached the Planning Group for support we were concerned that this type of business might incur some county procedural delays that could cause Jim to miss selling this year (the season is fast approaching). We like to think our letter of support and contact with Supervisor Kinsey helped move this along — quickly. Watch for Jim’s grand opening announcement and his new business days and hours. “Oldies” plan to rearrange your shopping schedule and “Newies” check this out!
