Pinole Farm Grand Opening Awesome!
Pinole Creek Incubator Farm is nestled in between Briones and the City of Pinole, 20 minutes outside of Oakland and 12 minutes from the Orinda BART. This farmer incubation project on EBMUD watershed land along the Pinole Creek aims to improve food sovereignty for vulnerable urban communities by developing a vertically-integrated network of fresh food enterprises inked to the stewardship of public lands. Farmers are selected from internally and internationally displaced communities living in Oakland and the greater East Bay. Diverse East Bay farmers will apply sustainable food production practices from agricultural traditions around the world, supplying fresh foods at affordable prices while improving biodiversity. On-site education and training programs enable our farmers to share their expertise with each other and the general public, building stronger relationships between East Bay land and communities. The project is a partnership between Iu-Mien Village Farms, International Rescue Committee, Phat Beets Produce, PUEBLO, and EBMUD.
