Add comment on:Occupy the Farm reclaims UC Gill Tract in Albany: photos
Two to three hundred people marched from the Earth Day rally at Ohlone Park in Berkeley to the Gill Tract at the intersection of San Pablo and Marin Avenues in Albany. This is the last best farmland in the East Bay, but the University of California intends to sell much of it to private developers so that a shopping center with a Whole Foods grocery store and a parking lot can be built. Immediately upon arrival, people began to clear and till the land. Organizers are asking supporters to tell friends, come down, and learn what urban farming is all about.
