This group is for people growing vegetables in the Oakland area (all locals welcome!) to get together and share techniques, experiences, seeds, methods, material, etc. so that we can all grow more edible plants (fruits, tubers, nuts, seeds, greens, mushrooms, herbs, spices, etc). Meetups will include meeting in a garden and seed/start swaps, but may also include outings to farms, garden festivals, nursery visits, as well as community service opportunities. Come join us!
We have just instituted a $2/year membership fee in order to keep this group up on Meetup.com (which costs money) and pay for workshops, tools, and/or plants for members. If you join us, you will get free seeds/starts, delicious treats, and friends at every meetup, and find that this group is worth sooooooo much more than the $2/year. :)
