Urban Farm Tours is a self-guided tour where you are invited to visit a diversity of urban farms throughout the day.  From a tiny home-scale garden to a sprawling community farm you will look and learn from a variety of urban farmers. Tours start on the hour at each location and last about 40 minutes, allowing time for you to get to the next location.

You will see backyard fruit orchards, vegetable gardens, composting systems, chickens, coops, bees, ducks, greywater and rainwater catchment, a model school garden a multi-use community space and the last open farmland in the East Bay, wrested from the pavement.  The "farms range in size from 1200 square feet to 2 acres.Ask questions, get advice and sample some of the bounty these farms are producing.   This years tour features a mix of single family farms and community projects located  from North Oakland to Albany.  Most of the sites are bikeable.

Full descriptions of the sites can be found here:

How It Works:
Once you've purchased your ticket, you are on the list!  We'll send you the locations, directions and other details the week before the event (on Wednesday October 9 and later to be precise).  The addresses are not published anywhere on the web--so look for that important email!

Once you have the locations, plan your itinerary and bike, drive or walk yourself there.  Visit as many of the sites as you have time or interest for. Guided tours with  Q & A are lead by the farmers every hour on the hour . Each tour lasts about 40 minutes.  with time to get to the next location.

Support the Farm Tour!  Your advance purchase ticket supports the valuable work of urban farmers and the educational mission of the Institute of Urban Homesteading, enabling us to continue to offer sliding scale options while paying teachers and farmers a living wage. In our sliding scale tradition we offer you the option to support us even more by  purchasing  a "Friend of the Farm Tour" or "Patron of the Farm Tour" ticket!
