It's official! Victorian Preservation Center of Oakland is partnering with Victory Garden Foundation to rehabilitate the historical landmark Cohen Bray House Oak Tree Farm. The Farm becomes the newest member of the Peoples Victory Garden program.
The Farm, located in Oakland's Fruitvale District will be designed for the community and include a robust Children's Garden Learning Center.

Oh I wish that it would rain, rain, rain, rain!
Many gardeners love to garden in the rain. Here's our rain policy ...
A downpour or steady rain will Cancel the Garden Work Day. There will not be a mentor on site. If you are one of those rain loving gardeners, you are welcome to garden at the Lakeside and Telegraph Gardens if you are a current garden member.
All other gardens will cancel if it rains.
Hosted by Victory Garden Foundation in partnership with Growing Together
With the generous donation from Growing Together, volunteers, garden members, and teachers planted nearly all of the Fruit Trees.
There are a few trees at each site that still need to be planted.
