Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project

“Let me show you how the West Coast Rock” Excuse my musical turrets, but here is yet another out of the Yay Area.

Acta Non Verba is located in Oakland, California. It was founded by Kelly D. Carlisle.

They do a lot but here is a glimpse:

  • They serve youth from 5-17 years young
  • Have a safe and creative space for the youth in the program
  • They use the garden-as-classroom model
  • Run a community-based and community-backed program
  • Provide fresh and affordable produce to an underserved population
  • The funds collected from sales goes towards college funds for the participants
  • Provides an extracurricular activity
  • They hold camps, field-trips, farm stand and a CSA.

Follow them on FB to stay abreast and for possible volunteer opportunities or other ways you can help. And here is the Website.
