We are an urban mini-farm located in the beautiful east bay hills of San Francisco, in El Sobrante. We use French intensive gardening practices, and we are organic certified by CCOF. In addition to the listed fruits and vegetables, we offer quinoa, amaranth, apple mint, chocolate mint, chickpeas, and fresh rau ram (aka laksa, or vietnamese mint). We pride ourselves on growing open-pollinated heritage breeds of grains, pulses, herbs, flowers, fruits, and vegetables.

Our vegetables, strawberries, and rhubarb are grown in composted double-dug beds using hand tools and manual labor. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. Soil fertility and plant health are maintained by promoting abundant soil life and organic matter, and using companion planting and crop rotations.
