Creating Food Security in Oakland with Planting Justice


Grow Food | Grow Jobs | Grow Community

Since 2009 Planting Justice has built over 250 edible permaculture gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area, worked with three high-schools to develop food justice curriculum and created 11 green jobs for men transitioning from Prison in the food justice movement

FOOD JUSTICE

We work to address the structural inequalities inherent within the production, distribution, and consumption of industrial foods, specifically recognizing the issues of race, class, privilege, and oppression.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

We believe that by including FOOD in the green jobs discussion, we show how thousands of jobs can be created to usher in a new local and sustainable food system that creates access to healthy food and jobs in low-income urban and rural communities that reinvigorate local economic activity

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

We believe that communities should challenge the structural inequalities where they live, work, and play that negatively impact their health and well-being while seeking to have equal access to environmental goods including: green space, public transportation, and nutritious/affordable food.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

We believe that everybody deserves to be treated with respect and have equal access to food, jobs, and education.
