The Alameda Native History Project is proud to announce their Cultural & Educational Program Offerings for 2024-2025.

2024 Acorn Granary Challenge

Beginning July 1, 2024; and,
Ending on July 31, 2024.

Mix modern and traditional methods of acorn granary construction to create a semi-permanent structure which will hold the acorns from our First Annual Acorn Harvest.

The challenge is creating something that will withstand the elements over winter.

We will meet as a team to construct these Acorn Granaries. Together we will learn about the different kinds of Acorn Granaries; integrated pest management uses of California Native Plants; and how indigenous technology works to keep food safe for centuries.

This is a series of free events which happens 10am-2pm Every Sunday in July.
