Kick-off a Year of Sustainable Gardening

Join Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) as they kick off their “Year of Sustainable Gardening” for a free screening of filmmaker Mark Kitchell’s new film: Evolution of Organic at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11, at Rhythmix Cultural Works.

The film tells the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. By now organic has gone mainstream, split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture. 

ABG is a community-wide network of gardeners in Alameda. ABG grows food and donates extra produce to the Alameda Food Bank. Participation is free and open to all residents of Alameda and the surrounding area.
