GROW Oakland Farm

October 15, 2019 update

GROW Oakland Farm was a wonderful addition to our services.  There is something magical that happens when a young person gets outside and plays with flowers.

However, after piloting the program for the past year, we are sunsetting it to focus on direct service priorities.  We are thrilled to announce that farm manager and florist Jess Myles will continue to operate the farm as her own business – Boxcar Flower Farm.  Jess will carry on the farm’s commitment to community and education.   We look forward to partnering with Boxcar Flower Farm in the future, and encourage you to consider Boxcar for any floral needs.
