The Ashby Community Garden was founded in 2004 on a privately-owned empty lot in South Berkeley. Today there is a flourishing garden of Community fruit trees, chickens, a beehive, and about a dozen individual plots. Click here to learn about our latest activities.
We're here to grow our own food and cut out the middle man; we are independent of any city program and run on a volunteer basis only. Volunteer members maintain the garden, grow food year-round, and hold community events. Check our calendar section for new events.
The Ashby Community Garden is open limited hours, depending on member's schedules. Stop by to see what's growing, or for information contact:

Make your own Comfrey tincture! Comfrey is an important herb in organic gardening, used as a fertilizer and herbal medicine. One name for comfrey is ‘knitbone’, a reminder of its traditional use in healing bone fractures. Modern science confirms that comfrey can influence the course of some types of muscle and joint pain. Comfrey extract is used as a skin treatment. The plant contains allantoin, which is thought to stimulate cell growth while depressing inflammation.
Taught by homeopathic practitioner, Lourdes Gonzaga, as part of the Transition Albany Medicine-Making Series.
