Add comment on:Gill Tract's First Community Farm Day — April 26, 2014: photos
After years of struggle with the University of California by numerous groups who pushed for the right of the community to farm at the Gill Tract — culminating with occupations by East Bay food sovereignty activists in 2012 and 2013 that ended with multiple arrests, a lawsuit against occupiers, the razing of crops, and simply forcing farmers off of the land — a new coalition of community members, UC Berkeley students, academics and staff have won permission to farm on one and a half acres of the Gill Tract into the indefinite future. On April 26, the gates to the farm swung open to the general public for the first Community Farm Day.
