Come celebrate the hard work and quick progress Planting Justice has made creating tangible change throughout the Bay Area towards a more just and sustainable urban food system. I can attest to the impact PJ has had in a very short period with little funds. I have seen the faces of middle-schoolers working on their own food forest and gardens and the excitement of men in the H-unit at San Quentin in preparation for the vegetable garden in the prison yard. Now 2010 promises to scale these up significantly along with creating real green local jobs on a model that is easily replicable.
Enjoy a night of delicious catered organic food by Pachamana Cafe, Linden Street Brewery, and entertainment by the finest local performers.
The line-up includes a Bollywood dance performance by Archana Sachdev, the Halau O Keikiali’i Hula Group, CommuniTree, Mariee Sioux, Dascrybe of Debajo del Agua, the Space Pirates Cooking Show, and more. There will also be a silent auction that will offer wonderful installations of sustainable urban food systems, including a custom permaculture garden, a bee hive, a chicken coop, an earthen cob oven, a greywater system, as well as dinner-for-two at a local restaurant!
All proceeds go to support Planting Justice’s Green Jobs program in 2010 and their urban permaculture projects at San Quentin State Prison, middle-schools and high-schools in Oakland, and various backyards and frontyards that are helping community members grow healthy food right where they live.
The event is expected to sell out, so please reserve your place today!
