Our backyard garden program builds food self-sufficiency by empowering low-income families, childcare providers, senior centers and community groups to grow fresh produce for their own communities. We construct raised-bed gardens and provide on-going mentorship to ensure that gardeners feel supported as they grow their own food.
Many members of our community lack space for a garden at their own home or site. At the West Oakland Farm Park, we provide raised bed garden plots for individual families and community groups. Gardeners receive on-going mentorship, support and seedlings from our on-site greenhouse, and have 24-hour access to their plot.
