August 24, 2014

Come see our farm through the eyes of its chief steward and farmer, and find out the answers to these questions and more on our behind-the-scenes farm tour with Willow Rosenthal: What do we grow and why? How has the farm evolved since we planted our first raised beds three years ago? How do carrots, kale, bees, goats, fish, worms and chickens form an interconnected ecosystem that produces an extraordinary abundance of produce and protein in a relatively small footprint right here in West Berkeley?

This family-friendly event is free. We ask that you kindly register in advance so we may know how many people to expect. Like all events here on the farm, we ask that you bring a canned food item to contribute to our food bank.

Aquaponics provides an opportunity for farmers, especially those in urban locations, to grow safe, pure, organic food without the risk of touching contaminated soils. Astonishingly, in ideal conditions, aquaponics can grow a full head of lettuce two to three times faster than if grown in soil.

Learn how you can raise fish and plants together in a symbiotic relationship. With an established functional system as our guide, we’ll discover how it all works: including types of fish and plants well-suited for systems, options for assembling your own home system from readily available materials, and troubleshooting.

As with every Urban Adamah event, please bring a canned good to donate to our food bank.
