They are the largest supportive housing provider for homeless families in Alameda County, and offer a wide range of services give residents the tools they need for long-term success.
One of the services that APC offers is a small, diversified working farm that produces thousands of pounds of sustainably grown produce each year. They are a social enterprise of Alameda Point Collaborative and use their passion for food and the environment to support APC residents as they move toward economic self-sufficiency and greater health and wellness. Proceeds from the CSA (community supported agriculture) program and other sales activities are pumped back into APC’s programs and activities for its resident community.
This is a HONEY HARVEST! some come prepared to get sticky! Noah will be giving a honey harvesting lesson and a variety of alternative (non-bee-related) farm tasks are also available. The farm is open for working until 2:30, and we will be harvesting/filtering/bottling honey from 9:00AM until 3:00PM.
