"Another world is not only possible, she is on her way..." Support ANV and get PERKS!

ANV is creating new worlds for our children to grow into and breathe in... Here's how you can help!

Donate to ANV and help everyone we touch not JUST survive, but THRIVE!

With One Small Gift a Month, You Can Positively Impact the Health and Well-Being of Oakland Families in Need. Your Donation Goes Towards:
- Increasing fresh food accessibility to “Food Desert” neighborhoods

- Sustaining beautiful green spaces that serve as community hubs, education centers, and food producing farms

- Providing resources for urban youth to learn, play, grow, and develop important life skills such as financial literacy and gardening

- Helping Oakland Youth from low income families attend ANV Camps and After School Programs

- Creating safe spaces where Oakland youth can get homework help, learn about higher education opportunities, practice healthy living, and develop marketable employment skills

Your sustaining friendship helps ensure that Acta Non Verba continues its mission of elevating life in the inner city through urban farming.

ANV’s quarter-acre farm located in the City of Oakland’s Tassafaronga Park is planned, planted, harvested and sold by youth in grades K-8. Not only does this allow young folks to learn how to grow and process healthy foods, but it also teaches them about finances, savings, and entrepreneurial skills. 100% of the proceeds from the youth-run farm stands go into individual savings accounts for participants. We also prioritize building up our youth by putting 100% of the profits from our CSA Beet Boxes also go directly into our youth participant's savings accounts. We rely on our community's help to fund all our wonderful youth programs!

☆ A special thank-you gift on each solstice and equinox (4 times per year) Spring Equinox (March 20th), Summer Solstice (June 21) Fall Equinox (September 22), and Winter Solstice (December 21).

ANV After School Program – serving local children ages 5-13 four days a week with homework help and enrichment

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
