Followed by a Community Forum on Visions for Food Sovereignty and Food Justice
3 PM – Gather at the Gill Tract South Side: Monroe St. at San Pablo Ave
The Planter Box Rally will highlight that land access is fundamental to growing food in an urban environment. UC Berkeley may have forced the public off of the Gill Tract, yet still we farm. The community forum will contextualize the Gill Tract within the larger scope of food sovereignty and food justice issues that affect people throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
Come prepared to BUILD, PLANT and GROW on the Gill Tract South Side (AKA Albany Meadows).
We’ll need more:
- wood, nails
- paint, paint brushes
- hand tools (drills, hammers, shovels, trowels)
- seeds/seedlings – vegetables and wildflowers
- water + watering cans
- compost, soil
- and bring a friend (or two, or three)!
Farmland is for farming!
