200 urban farmers occupy the last piece of East Bay farmland and plant 15,000 seedlings to save it from becoming a shopping mall. Occupy The Farm tells their story.

Coming Fall 2014!

They cut the padlock off the gate, and marched onto the last pristine farmland in the urban East Bay. They raised a banner that read, Occupy the Farm, and told the press, “farmland is for farming.”

Then they planted 15,000 seedlings to save this publicly owned land from becoming a shopping mall, condos and baseball diamonds.

Occupy the Farm surprised officials. Inspired and angered neighbors. Created a media sensation. Drew in riot police. And changed the fate of the land.
