The Gill Tract Community Farm has continued to grow and distribute food during the pandemic, thanks to incredible community collaboration!  We are also working to understand our new role as the East Bay's largest overwintering site for the endangered Western Monarch Butterfly.   We could use your support as we advocate and fundraise for updated biological surveying at the farm, so that we can implement an Overwintering Site Management Plan, as we've been advised to do by the Xerces Society.  This will help guide our work, and help us understand how to advocate for responsible mitigation of the Albany Graduate Student Housing Development.  Here's how you can lend a hand:

  1. Help us with media and expertise.  We want to better understand our Monarchs, and get the word out about the need to help them.  Please reach out ( if you are a journalist or specialist in the field.

  2. Join the community circle!  Become a farm volunteer and/or let us know you want to receive our newsletter by clicking the "Get involved" button above.  Online and distance volunteers welcome, as well as farmers!

  3. Donate, to help us compensate specialists who can guide our work with the Monarchs.
