Education & Events


 The farm offers a space for educational programs for various age groups (K-12, university students, adult community members, elders). We are looking to collaborate with local residents,  schools, community centers, garden education programs, and UC Berkeley students/alumni/staff/faculty. We are dedicated to facilitating greater justice, knowledge, and awareness in the community



The Berkeley Food Institute and Gill Tract Farm Coalition are delighted to present three summer short courses in herbal medicine, Indigenous lifeways and two spirit medicine, and urban agroecology to be taught at the UC Gill Tract Community Farm. These courses represent just a handful of the farm’s community-managed food system centered around local, organic, agro-ecological farming practices. Come learn from experienced practitioners about how to harness the medicinal powers of herbs, how rematriation serves as a vehicle to Indigenous land sovereignty, and how farming practices like composting and seed saving mixed with political ideology can lead to global land sovereignty. Learn more about these classes here!
