Community Days are monthly events held at the West Oakland Farm Park that provides opportunities for individuals and groups to experience a day at the farm. Activities include: fieldwork volunteering, workshops, cooking demo, seedling sales, and socializing.
Many of our community days will have educational workshop or other activity happening. Check out our calendar to see whats coming up!
In partnership with local agencies, we install and maintain high-yield urban gardens in communities where access to healthy and affordable food is not secure. Our partnerships include Alameda County Nutrition Services, SAHA, EBALD-C, Eden Housing, and other residential organizations that work with vulnerable communities.
Our garden partner program includes: garden installation, seasonal maintenance, agriculture-related workshops, and cooking/nutrition demonstrations.
Partnerships like these allow us to expand our services to other food-insecure communities across Alameda County.
The community garden consists of 28 plots that are fully managed by community members. Participants can take advantage of the all the supplies and support at the farm. At this time, the community garden is full.
Community garden program participants provide volunteer service at the farm in exchange for their growing space. They also participate in seasonal garden workshops and workdays specifically designed for community garden participants.
The WOFP Garden is full at the moment. You may complete a general inquiry form to request to be on a wait list.
Our group workday programs offers organizations an opportunity to provide team building and professional development while giving back to the community.
Work includes a variety of small-farm chores. We often need help with carpentry and larger projects that support residents across Alameda County.
Group workdays are an essential part of our earned-income strategy. Many organizations spend a day working with us and also contribute towards the group project expense. Many of these same organizations offer matching donation programs and/or paid volunteer hours.
