Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) elevates life in the inner city by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments through urban farming. ANV’s quarter acre farm located in the City of Oakland’s Tassafaronga Park is planned, planted, harvested and sold by youth in grades K-8. One hundred percent of the proceeds are placed into individual savings accounts for those who participate.

Why I Give

Head Shots Garden
by Josephine Radbill, ANV Board Member

Acta Non Verba works tirelessly to address issues of food justice in East Oakland. Whether it’s educating children about healthy eating, teaching community gardeners how to grow their own food or hosting engaging workshops and field trips at the farm, Acta Non Verba empowers the East Oakland community to be healthier and happier.

Not only do I believe in Acta Non Verba’s mission, but I have witnessed their impact, and it’s powerful. I am so proud to support the programs at ANV that build a more just food system for residents of East Oakland.
