Tupelo Gardens started off as an experiment to produce food in a outdoor setting using inexpensive up-cycled materials. It has been so successful that it now produces enough specialty produce to supply a catering company, the neighborhood and of course ourselves


The goal of this was to demonstrate to community members particularly those who live in food deserts how they could make small salad gardens for no cost leveraging city and county community resources. 


“Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project (ANV) elevates life in the inner city by challenging oppressive dynamics and environments 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. One hundred percent of the proceeds are placed into individual savings accounts for those who participate.”
