Wednesday, October 3, 2018

Our After-School Program (ASP) made their first store delivery to Mandela Foods Cooperative Grocery Store, last week! Youth members participating in ASP pick fresh pineapple-guavas from our WOW Farm site. We walked them across the street and down the road from the farm, to our neighbors at Mandela Foods. There, we were warmly greeted by the coop workers’ and customers. What a great way to kick off this partnership!

Stop by Mandela Foods (1430 7th St, Oakland, CA 94607), get you some hand-picked pineapple guavas, and support your local coop today! 😎💚🍈👩🏾‍🌾👨🏾‍🌾

WOW Farm is Now a Project of Acta Non Verba!

What is Wow Farm?

Wow Farm has operated in West Oakland for nearly 20 years and is now a project of Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project!

At Wow Farm we employ organic and natural farming methods to grow more than 20 varieties of microgreens, 7 herb varieties and 10 types of fruit.

We grow quality produce year-around and utilize raised mounds, drip irrigation, integrated pest management, and regularly amend our soil with organic compost, a portion of which is produced on site.  We sell & deliver our produce directly to local restaurants and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) customers around in and around Oakland.

In addition to our After School Program, Camp ANV’s Leaders In Training (LIT’s) now have another space to learn sustainable agriculture and and microenterprise!

Acta Non Verba Partners with the Oakland Athletics for “The Farm”!

Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) and the Oakland A’s announced yesterday the creation of The Farm, an originative garden designed by ANV’s Farm Manager, Aaron De La Cerda & ANV Consultant, Gino Orlando. Additionally, the A’s have partnered with Acta Non Verba to lead food justice and leadership programming on the Farm.

Located  on the south end of the Eastside Club near the right field flagpoles, The Farm is set to debut during the 2018 baseball season. The Farm consists of thirty-six redwood planters that will grow an assortment of seasonal produce and flowers alongside tables and benches for fans to enjoy during the game.

The area will be able to accommodate approximately 100 fans at a time.  The intimate and private space will be available for groups to reserve for pregame events such as ANV’s Annual Fundraiser scheduled for May 19th at the Coliseum’s Eastside Club.
