Event Details

Farm2Market Tuesday Harvest is geared toward individual volunteers that would like to experience urban food production and harvest farm fresh produce for the market. Volunteers help with farm production activities such as watering, weeding, harvesting, mulching and pruning. Farm2Market Tuesday Harvest is limited to six people, larger groups can arrange a volunteer service day with the event organizer.

The Farm at Alameda Point Collaborative is a two-acre urban farm created by the Growing Youth Project (GYP) in 2005. GYP gave young APC residents an opportunity to develop leadership skills while addressing important health and food security issues in the community.  In 2012, GYP became the Farm2Market adult employment training program. Farm2Market  trainees grow produce, manage sales and lead volunteer groups.

About
Alameda Point Collaborative is a supportive housing community that uses all of its resources to help families and adults break the cycle of homelessness.
 
Mission
We help end homelessness by providing housing and services to create a community where formerly homeless families can flourish. We have turned 34 acres and 200 units of former Navy housing into a thriving community.
 
Overview
Alameda Point Collaborative has helped families overcome homelessness since 1999. Over 95 percent of our families in permanent housing are successful in keeping permanent housing, increasing their economic well-being and finding success. We help the children and youth who live in our community to access education and opportunity and focus on breaking the inter-generational cycle of poverty and homelessness. Over half of our staff are formerly homeless.
