Albany Farm Alliance Benefit Dance Party - Valentine for the Gill Tract
Get your groove on, dancing to the beat of Sauce Piquante, the Starlings, and the Funky Nixons. Help keep the Gill Tract farmland forever and establish a world class agroecological center to serve the people of the Bay Area and beyond. Backroom community-building activities include allied organizations' interactive information tables, a film clip from Occupy the Farm documentary, and an art table for kids and adults creating valentines and visions for the Gill Tract.
You may recall that the 20 acres presently owned by UC Berkeley are at the corner of Marin and San Pablo in Albany, Ca. and have been kept from commercial development by various local citizens' groups for over 15 years. Beginning last Earth Day, the Occupy the Farm movement farmed the land for several weeks and sparked renewed interest and commitment to developing and maintaining the space as a valuable urban agricultural resource serving the community.
