Tired of speed dating? Try weed dating

12661811_931553063567251_8425418065237849063_nFor the past few years, Green Gate Farm has hosted a volunteer event around Valentine’s Day to help you find your soil — er, soul — mate.
Weed dating, as they call it, is a “wholesome way to find friends who share your love of the outdoors and local food,” and by friends, I think they mean “that person you can grow old and garden with.”
It’s not a bad idea, really. As the people who run FarmersOnly.com know, a love of where your food comes from is a pretty good quality to have in a partner, so why not attempt to find that person while harvesting carrots or planting lettuce?
The free Green Gate Weed Dating event is taking place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 13, at the farm, 8310 Canoga Avenue.
No need to clean your fingernails first.
