Grow Food. Grow Jobs. Grow Community.
Since 2009 Planting Justice has built over 550 edible permaculture gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area, worked with five high-schools to develop food justice curricula and created over 40 green jobs in the food justice movement for people transitioning from prison.
In just 10 years, we have built over 500 permaculture gardens across the Bay Area, provided 44 living wage jobs with benefits for formerly incarcerated people, built a 2-acre nursery with the largest collection of certified organic fruit trees in North America, rematriated our nursery site to the Ohlone people through the indigenous women-led land trust Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, built the most diverse organic urban farm in the country with over 1,000 varieties of tree crops, offered workshops to over 10,000 low-income youth in Oakland, and we are an organization led by frontline black, indigenous and latinx communities!
