Mission

Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) elevates life in Oakland, CA and beyond by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments through urban farming. Founded and led mainly by women of color from the surrounding neighborhood and larger community, ANV creates a safe and creative outdoor space for children, youth, and families in East Oakland, CA. ANV engages and deepens their understanding of nutrition, food production, and healthy living as well as strengthens their ties to the community. ANV’s three farms located in the City of Oakland are planned, planted, harvested and sold by youth in grades K-12. One hundred percent of the profits are placed into individual savings accounts for those youth who participate.
