Alameda Backyard Growers: Building community through gardening

Amazing things happen when people work together.

Alameda Backyard Growers is putting the community back into urban gardening. With programs like “grow some, keep some and give some away” and fruit gleaning, local residents are harvesting fruit and vegetables for those in need and for themselves.

What started with a great idea and 30 participants has grown into a grassroots group of 250 vegetable growers and fruit pickers. Since April 2011, Alameda Backyard Growers have donated more than 500 pounds of freshly picked produce to the Alameda Food Bank.
