Celebrate Earth Week at the Gill Tract!


Join us at the UC Gill Tract Community Farm as we recognize the 45th Anniversary of Earth Day with a celebratory week of workshops, panels, and events in the spirit of the 45 year history of the Gill Tract.

Woven throughout the week is an intentional conversation on the past and future of the Gill Tract farm and what our place is in the local and international struggles for justice. What is the role of the Gill Tract in food system transformation? How can we center the voices and experiences of frontline workers in the food system? What is our space in struggles against racial and economic violence? Join us in reflecting and planting our intentions for the year ahead.
