Our Approach

We are working toward economic and environmental justice by building a network of sustainable land–based social enterprises. We counter systemic oppression, violence, and inequity by creating good jobs with nature-based work, a healing environment with holistic community support, and real opportunities for personal growth.

    • Planting Justice being here in the community educates about what organic is, how to grow your own food, take care of it, harvest it, and actually pay attention to what’s going on in your dinner plate. It’s very important because a lot of our youth rely on hot Cheetos and soda as a breakfast.
