Acta Non Verba Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) elevates life in the inner-city 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. Within this severely economically depressed neighborhood in the nation’s second most dangerous city, ANV engages and deepens their understanding of nutrition, food production, and healthy living as well as strengthens their ties to the community.
If you are task-oriented, enjoy working in a friendly office environment, and want to make a difference in your community, then volunteering with Acta Non Verba is the perfect fit for you! Our volunteers are an essential part of the ANV team and report directly to the Office Manager and occasionally the Program Director.
