Day Trippers - Hal Thilmony, Chair

Recaps of previous day trips.

March 2024

Known for its sustainable farming practices, Talley Farms grows 40 different types of fruits and vegetables. They have offered to provide a tour of their farm and packing shed in Arroyo Grande to as many as 30 guests on March 29th at 10am.  The tour will take about an hour and a half. 
This outing is open to RAM members as well as wives or companions. If you would like to sign up send an email to hthilmon@yahoo.com.  Let me know who will be attending.  
The address to the farm is 2900 Lopez Drive, Arroyo Grande.  I will reconfirm attendance 7-10 beforehand.  If there are heavy rains at the end of March this outing may be postponed. 
Given the potential size of this group, finding a place for a follow-on lunch may be challenging. Let me know if you would be “interested” in lunch. I will see what I can arrange.  

January 2024

In January 2024, 15 RAMs clad in safety vests and hard hats toured the Kompogas Anaerobic Digester facility.  This state-of-the-art operation is where green organic house-hold and commercial waste is converted into carbon neutral energy (CNG, biomethane, electricity) as well as liquid fertilizer and dry compost.
