Here are some urban farms and community gardens (yes, they are two different things!) and information about community gardening / urban edible gardening programs.
Doing your own gardening and farming and being a part of the local food production community here in Oakland is just one part of lots of different collaborative, DIY, sharing, peer to peer things that happens here. You can see a bit more of the entire landscape of stuff in this realm here.
