Gardening and farming program 2016

This year we have expanded our operation. We are now farming on Robinwood which gives us the space we need to increase food production.

There has been great progress in working new land, developing improved water collection systems and additional infrastructure like our new farmstand!
Take a look at some the this progress!










Goldengate Bike COOP

The Goldengate Bike COOP is now entering it's second year of operation. The support we've received from the surrounding community has been tremendous. We thank everyone for the time, effort and love they bring to this project.

These are some photos of the 2016 season which began in April.



















Community Assistance

When the city is unable to help the residents of our neighborhood Fireweed steps up to help those in need.

This tree has been blocking East Greendale for the past 7 days. The city stated it would take 3 days to clear. Due to the inaction of the city the residents of East Greendale asked Fireweed to help clear the street.
