Help us get the word out about Contra Costa Urban Farm Network

Please help us get the word out to all forms of garden/urban farm organizations within the county that are focused on growing food for their members or the community. We are interested in collaborating with all types of organizations that contribute to the local food source: community gardens, native and drought tolerant gardens that help our 'pollenators', urban farmers, local farms, CSAs, co-op organic growers, fruit gleaners, farmer's markets, backyard farm circles, etc.

Please invite them to join the network and this group to share in relevant discussions, create forums and participate in future events. If you prefer that we reach out to your contacts, please provide name, phone number, email address and/or snail mail for the contact individual.

Thanks for your support in building a sustainable foodscape in Contra Costa County.
