319 105th Avenue Oakland
Join Planting Justice, Oakland Climate Action Coalition (OCAC), and Environmental Justice Solutions (E / J Solutions) for a Climate Equity Work Day at the Planting Justice Nursery. Volunteers will seed and pot plants and other fun gardening activities.
OCAC and E / J Solutions are working with the City of Oakland to develop its2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP). The ECAP is our roadmap to a Just Transition and Green New Deal for Oakland, climate actions that create good green jobs, reduce pollution, and help Oaklanders thrive.
Climate Equity Work Days, best summarized by the maxim, “what the hands do, the heart learns,” are opportunities for residents to participate in hands-on resilience skills building and learn more about how to engage in planning for the future of climate action in Oakland.
Bring gloves for gardening and plenty of water. Food will be provided.
Since 2009 Planting Justice has built over 450 edible permaculture gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area, worked with five high-schools to develop food justice curricula and created 40 green jobs in the food justice movement for folks transitioning from prison.
- By building a local, sustainable food system, we can create thousands of green jobs. We provide fair wages with comprehensive benefits for a dignified livelihood in the food system because our communities have been starved for safe, healthy, and empowering jobs for far too long.
- By investing in food workers, we can reinvigorate our local economy, increasing access to nutritious food AND meaningful employment.
