Planting Justice, an Oakland-based food justice and urban agriculture organization, is holding its first end-of-year fundraising party at the Humanist Hall!
Come celebrate the hard work and quick progress this organization has made creating tangible change throughout the Bay Area towards a more just and sustainable urban food system. 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!
