ABG meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month from 7:00 to 8:00 pm at Rhythmix Cultural Works (unless otherwise noted). Rhythmix Cultural Works is located at 2513 Blanding in Alameda.
Monthly meetings/workshops are free and open to all residents of Alameda and the surrounding area. Gardeners of all experience levels are welcome! Monthly meetings are also a great time to drop off fruit and vegetable donations from your garden for the Alameda Food Bank. We deliver members’ produce to the Alameda Food Bank the following morning where it is typically distributed to food bank clients within 24 hours.
