ACT NOW: the Berkeley Edible Gardens Initiative

The Berkeley Edible Gardens Initiative is a campaign to allow neighbors to sell or trade the surplus edibles they produce in their yards (fruits, vegetables, eggs, and honey). Currently, Berkeley’s Municipal Code prohibits this type of activity unless one applies for costly permits. A coalition of local activists and organizations including the Ecology Center has united to propose minor changes to the City’s zoning code that would facilitate the sale and trade of non-processed edibles produced in Berkeley yards, while still respecting the residential nature of our neighborhoods.
