Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) elevates life in Oakland and beyond by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments through urban farming. Founded and led mainly by women of color from the surrounding neighborhood and larger community, ANV creates a safe and creative outdoor space for children, youth, and families in East Oakland, CA. ANV engages and strengthens young people’s understanding of nutrition, food production, the natural world and healthy living as well as strengthens their ties to the community.

Why I Give

Victoria-Russell
by Victoria Russell, ANV Advisory Board Member

I grew up in the heart of rural Mississippi. I was surrounded by nutritious fruits and vegetables, which were grown and shipped out to the rest of the country, but my diet consisted of highly processed foods and refined sugars. After I moved to California and began to invest in my own health and wellness, my understanding of both urban and rural food deserts began to grow. The way my mind, body, and spirit have healed from eating nutrient-dense food that I had a hand in producing creates a sense of pride as well as a healthier body!

What powerful tools Acta Non Verba gives our young people… I give my time to ANV because the future of our planet and the spirit of our youth depends upon it.
