Berkeley: From Farm to Urban Farming 1850-2013

April 14 – September 28, 2013 

Opening Sunday, April 14th 2013 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, this exhibit highlights the farms, dairies, nurseries, and orchards that dotted the land in the early days, and chronicles the continued importance of agriculture in Berkeley’s life today through the community farm and urban farm movements. It brings together a collection of photographs, maps, objects, and first-hand accounts to tell the story of how Berkeley developed from rural territory in the 19th century into a residential, educational, and manufacturing community in the 20th century, to the thriving urban farm and community garden movement today.

A short Annual meeting will be held to elect officers and board members for the Historical Society and to celebrate the 135th Anniversary of the Founding of Berkeley.
Join us for light refreshments and cake after the program.
