Time Commitment

Duration

Long-Term (6 months-1 year)


Located in East Oakland, Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) focuses on elevating life in the inner-city by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments through urban farming. Founded and led by women of color from the surrounding neighborhood, ANV creates safe, outdoor spaces for children, youth, and their families to explore the natural world while strengthening their sense of community. With cooking and nutrition classes built into every program, ANV deepens campers’ understanding of healthy living and wellness in a neighborhood plagued by obesity and food insecurity. In addition to providing a fun, hands-on learning experience, ANV’s four farms supply year round seasonal vegetables to ANV’s camps, a CSA program, and several farm to table restaurants in the East Bay.
