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.

The 167-acre grounds also serve as an educational hub for the Bay Area through demonstration of exemplary practices in permaculture, reforestation, and sustainability. Drawn by the site’s beauty and the center’s¬†uncompromising dedication to treating Mother Nature with respect, students come from around the world to attend workshops on best practices in farming
