Growing Community Together

We regularly host individuals, community groups, schools, and businesses at our four-acre mother farm in El Sobrante, at the Good Table in El Sobrante, & our East Oakland nursery for volunteer days.

Most of our on-site volunteer work involves working with plants and the tasks vary a great deal from season to season. Join us regularly throughout the year to gain exposure to a wide variety of different activities, tools, and techniques to round out your farm, nursery & garden education.

For groups volunteering from for-profit entities, we recommend a sliding scale donation to Planting Justice from $250-$2500. However, we will not turn anyone away for lack of funds. We value you and your time and appreciate your support.

    • Planting Justice opened doors for me I never thought possible. In this environment, you’re not a number, you’re a person. You get encouraged to be in leadership positions, to introduce new things to the program. You have a lot of room to grow.
