Alameda Backyard Growers
Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) held their August educational program on site at Farm2Market, the social enterprise farm division of Alameda Point Collaborative (APC).
Many of us enjoy viewing the canopy of full-grown trees that grace many Alameda streets, but trees are not simply aesthetically pleasing. Many different research studies have shown that living around trees is good for people’s health.

Fruit trees can be planted in fall, winter, or spring, but only in winter are bare root trees available.
