Celebrate a New Regenerative Farming Project at Ardenwood Historic Farm: August 17

Writer Austin Price photographed the Dig Deep Farms food hub mural in 2020 for his story in Edible East Bay’s Summer Harvest 2020 issue. Now, Dig Deep is opening yet another new farm to advance its food equity efforts throughout Alameda County.


The Grand Opening Celebration for the new 90-acre Dig Deep Farms Regenerative Farming Project at Ardenwood Historic Farm is coming up on Wednesday, August 17, noon to 3pm, at 34600 Ardenwood Boulevard in Fremont.

Come to learn how this new project supports local BIPOC farmers, creates living wage farming jobs, boosts regenerative food production, alleviates food insecurity, and expands the Recipe4Health food-as-medicine healthcare model as it accelerates the growth of ALL IN Eats, the county’s local circular food economy, and enhances public safety through the Alameda County Sheriff’s Community Capitals Policing initiative.

This family-friendly celebration will include a press conference, remarks, games, entertainment, healthy food and beverages, Dig Deep Farms gift bags, and guided tours of the facility.

Hosted by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, the Alameda County Supervisor Dave Brown, ALL IN Alameda County, the Alameda County Deputy Sheriffs’ Activities League, and the East Bay Regional Park District.
