Welcome to the Garden Center

Our team began in 2020 with a goal to bring seed kits to our communities as a way to alleviate the stress of shelter-in-place. We've grown, and we're excited to bring all things garden to our communities.

On these pages you will find information about our seed kits, gardening in the East Bay, library gardening programs, and local resources that will help you get the most out of your garden.

Our Gardening Mission

Grow Learners:
We bring garden-focused programming and resources to our communities for all ages and skill levels, enabling you to grow alongside your gardens.

Break Barriers:
We provide locally-supported seeds, garden tools through our Tool Lending Library, and a collection of books to support modern, water-wise gardening habits specific to our region.

Build Futures:
With shared skills and knowledge, together we can help build a sustainable future without food deserts and food inequity to support the next generation of gardeners.

Monthly Seed Kits

We select the contents of our seed kits for the growing conditions found in Alameda County. Each kit is released during the season when conditions are best for that crop. Enjoy!
