Look for these coming special events!
Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) is growing and we need your help to keep up with our success! Formed in 2010 and incorporated in 2013, ABG is a community of gardeners who enjoy growing our own food, sharing it with our neighbors and helping others learn how to grow and preserve their own food.
As a part of our mission, we harvest and donate to the Alameda Food Bank backyard fruit that would otherwise go to waste, more than 12 tons to date! We also host monthly classes, workshops and film screenings to educate, inform and strengthen our community of growers and pickers. We have developed special projects such as Project Tree, in which we provide subsidized trees to Alameda residents and schools and the Stop Food Waste Challenge where we help households save both money and the planet by reducing household food waste.
People love what we are doing. The Alameda Food Bank loves what we are doing. We’d like you to join with us to meet the need! By joining with us, you will meet wonderful people, grow community and grow yourself as well.
We have volunteer opportunities for all. Whether you want to get up in front of a room full of people, glean fruit or work from home (or something in between!), we have opportunities for you to contribute to ABG and help us grow stronger and reach more people.
To find out more about our volunteer opportunities, please join our mailing list and attend our Volunteer Orientation on Thursday November 15th at 7PM at Rhythmix Cultural Works.
