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 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.
