Dig Deep Farms grows healthy vegetables in the Alameda County communities of Ashland, Cherryland, and San Leandro. We currently have about 8 acres of land available for farming, with two small farm parcels in the flatlands and one large parcel in the hills of San Leandro. We have a 500 fruit-tree orchard at City View Farm in addition to vegetable plantings.

Founded in 2010 by residents of Ashland and Cherryland in partnership with DSAL and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, our mission is to improve health and wellbeing in the Eden Area by creating jobs and making fresh, locally grown food accessible to all.

 

DDF is a non-profit, social enterprise founded on the conviction that integrated community involvement, healthy food access, and job creation raise the quality of life- individually and collectively- of a community.

We plant seeds.

We grow food.

We sell fruits and vegetables.

We create jobs.

We build community.

We Dig Deep.

In an effort to create a circular economy, a resilient East Bay community is fighting against the odds and relying on their own solutions to combat food apartheid, address healthcare inequality, and reform the criminal justice system.

Deep shifts in systems, like regional food ecosystems, require a coordinated and collective vision, where community innovation and economic vibrancy are re-imagined and supported.

Emerald Cities Collaborative's Anchors in Resilient Communities (ARC) initiative, co-convened with Health Care Without Harm, highlights one dynamic and innovative local program of Alameda County Sheriff's office, Dig Deep Farms.

Roots of Resilience is a short, documentary film that follows the story of Dig Deep Farms, a non-profit project of the Alameda county that provides farming internships, healthcare food prescription delivery, and job opportunities to individuals recently released from prison.
