Meet May!


May began her food justice work during her days on the campus of UC Berkeley with the student-run organization Society for Agriculture & Food Ecology (SAFE). With her trusty team of student activists, she helped plan DIY workshops, published a zine of student-authored articles called "Lettuce Turnip the Beets", and organized town hall-style food & farming lectures. She has extended this work beyond the campus: helping to promote "The Greenhorns," a New York-based non-profit in the midst of producing a documentary film about young farmers in America, WWOOF'ing in Thailand and France, and studying the formation of intentional permaculture communities. She is constantly inspired by the love and dedication of urban farmers and community organizers across the country, and is stoked to be able to contribute to the continued transformation of Oakland communities in her work landscaping with Planting Justice. She adores wooden homes, sourdough, and cruising down hills on her track bike.
