Central Station

The Bay Area's Newest Destination

Thursday, March 27, 2008


You may have noticed that there is now a green house on the property in front of the sales office.
This structure was donated to People's Grocery, a non profit organization focusing on solving the community food and health needs of West Oakland by growing fresh fruit and vegetables, organically and locally.
I was able to walk into the green house the other day and it was like a steam bath in there. Rows of small plants, including 30+ varieties of tomatoes, are being incubated here and will then be transferred to People's Grocery's two acre farm in Sunol. They will then be packed into a SOUL box (Sustainable, Organic, Unprocessed and Local) and redistributed to residents in West Oakland. Peoples Grocery also has programs on healthy cooking, urban agriculture, nutrition and more. Please check them out at http://peoplesgrocery.org/
