- Is a collaborative partnership between several local community groups and UC Berkeley (location and hours on the back)
- Is an urban farm where you can come and harvest food for yourself and your family in exchange for help with weeding, planting, and watering
- aims to supply fresh organic food to anyone who lacks access to it in our East Bay communities
- Is one of the increasing number of urban agriculture and alternative sustainable food systems worldwide that exist to develop innovative local solutions to social, environmental and economic injustices.
- Is such fun to visit – an oasis of growing things in an urban jungle…
Community members are working with representatives of UC Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources to create a stewardship council that will jointly govern the land, as we learn about, research, and address food needs in the East Bay region and beyond. You are welcome to get involved at any level.
Go to www.gilltractfarm.wordpress.com if you’re interested in joining a working group or the governance council, or simply come and join us during our open hours (see below).
