How do you begin tackling your own ambitious urban-farm project without knowing what's possible for your site in the first place? If you are curious, or if you fall into the category of the slightly daunted, join the Institute of Urban Homesteading for a day of urban-farm tours in homes throughout Albany, El Cerrito, Richmond, and El Sobrante. You'll get a chance to see the fruit and vegetable gardens, chickens, goats, bees, earthen buildings, and greywater systems that others just like you have managed to tend to on properties of all shapes and sizes. With guided tours, tastings, Q&A's led by the farmers every hour, and a special raffle of various goods grown on the farms themselves.
Price: $5 per person, per location
