Pinole Farm Grand Opening Awesome!
Pinole Creek Incubator Farm is nestled in between Briones and the City of Pinole, 20 minutes outside of Oakland and 12 minutes from the Orinda BART. This farmer incubation project on EBMUD watershed land along the Pinole Creek aims to improve food sovereignty for vulnerable urban communities by developing a vertically-integrated network of fresh food enterprises inked to the stewardship of public lands.
Harvest Time Approaches
As harvest time approaches, PUEBLO's Urban Youth Harvest is about to get underway. If you have more fruit than you can handle, give us a call at 510 535 2525 and our youth will come and glean what you can't use We donate the produce we harvest to low-income seniors and others who can't afford or don't have access to fresh produce.
The Start of Tassafaronga Community Garden
In the summer of 2011, PUEBLO's Youth Greening Oakland program teamed up with Acta Non Verba to do the heavy lifting and prepare the soil for Tassafaronga's first community garden. We did outreach to the surrounding community and here's a short interview about the process from those who participated.
