Harvest has started at the Gill Tract Farm!

GT HarvestThe crops are abundant at the Gill Tract Farm and they are available to all in a number of ways.

If you can volunteer some time during the week to help with the never-ending cycle of planting, weeding and watering, you can take home whatever you can use. Just weigh it before you take it away so that we can keep track of how much food we are growing!

Regular volunteer hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 – 7 pm, and Sunday from 10-4 pm (first two hours on Sunday are taken up by the weekly meeting).

If you don’t have time to volunteer, you can drop by the farm stand every Thursday afternoon and pick up whatever you need. The food is free, but you may leave a donation if you wish.

There is now a farm website: http://gilltractfarm.wordpress.com/ with news of special events.

You can sign up on that website to stay informed of what’s happening…

This project is an innovative and developing collaboration between College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley, members of Occupy the Farm, the Gill Tract Farm Coalition, and community groups such as Albany Farm Alliance, Transition Albany & Transition Berkeley. Please come and join the fun! The Gill Tract Farm can be accessed either from the Jackson Street gate (cars OK) or from San Pablo Avenue (bikes and pedestrians only).
