About the Farm

GreenFriends Farm began as a challenge to plant a thousand fruit trees on the overgrazed land of a former cattle ranch east of Oakland, California. Now, over half way to meeting that number, with an 8 acre orchard, it has become a center for cutting edge agriculture, a destination for enjoying nature, and a vibrant spot for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds.

Come spend a couple hours or even a whole day outdoors in nature. We love help Monday through Saturday anytime the sun is up.

Currently we are processing the abundant harvest by dehydrating and preparing jams!

Prune trees

It’s winter and it’s time to prune about 800+ fruit trees! GreenFriends Farm welcomes anyone who has some experience pruning to help, even if you can only prune one tree. Anyone willing to learn and commit to pruning for a few hours a week is welcome.

And so much more!
