Since 2009 Planting Justice has built over 450 edible permaculture gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area, worked with five high-schools to develop food justice curricula and created 40 green jobs in the food justice movement for folks transitioning from prison.
We work to address the structural inequalities that have become embedded in the industrialized food system:
* the systemic exploitation of food system workers (especially undocumented farm and kitchen workers)
* the lack of access to fresh, nutritious food in low-income communities of color
* our culture's over-reliance on packaged, processed food that is killing our bodies and our environment
By building a local, sustainable food system, we can create thousands of green jobs.
