Gardens on the tour span from Alameda Point to Central Alameda to the East End and include vegetables, fruit trees, chickens, bees, herbs, and flowers. The tour highlights Farm2Market, a project of Alameda Point Collaborative, a working farm adjacent to Ploughshares Nursery. The nursery, also a project of Alameda Point Collaborative, will offer tour-goers a 20 percent discount on all plant purchases on September 14-15.
The tour concludes with a layered, permaculture “food forest” which was featured on ABG’s first farm tour in 2011. The final garden also hosts a tomato tasting of varieties grown in Alameda by ABG gardeners and Farm2Market.
