This paper outlines the process of a fence upgrade that was built for a non-profit organization in San Luis Obispo, CA called City Farm SLO. The City Farm SLO is a non-profit organization that educates locals how to grow healthy and sustainable foods. This new fencing project spans a total of 422 feet with three new farm gates. The process that was approached for this project was to have it planned in three different phases. The first phase was the pre-construction phase, which consisted of meetings with the owner, creating a design, making a materials list, estimating the total cost of the project, and lastly getting funding. The second phase was the construction of the fence, and the third phase was the final clean up phase. This project had some weather complications along the way that delayed the construction phase by about three months. Those weather delays will then help the construction processes get done faster. This paper will show the process that was taken to construct the newly built fence line meant for securing the crops. The project had its ups and downs, but the owner of the farm was excited and happy for their new secure fence.
