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

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.
