Issues: Human Services

Location: 1251 E. Victoria Court San Pablo CA 94806 USA

Mission: To assist in creating a systemic change in the SF East Bay of Northern California which meets environmental, social, and sustainability needs by addressing those areas upon which survival is dependent, specifically food, energy, transportation, shelter and social inclusion. We focus on low-income, high crime areas, but are not necessarily limited thereto, most particularly Richmond, CA. We approach these areas as part of an integrated larger area where coming together to make a systemic change can effect greater well-being for all members of the community.
Results: Over 11,450 fruit, nut and olive trees distributed freely to the community; four urban farms in current production by and for the community. Street orchard planted for the homeless and addicted community nearby.
Target demographics: create local food, natural building structures, urban farms
Geographic areas served: Richmond
Programs: materials, land and volunteer help to communities to create whole sustainable environments by and through their own sweat equity.
