ANV remains dedicated to our mission to provide education and access to fresh, local food through hands-on and virtual programs. Ensuring the health, power, and solidarity of our community has never been more important. You can learn more about ANV’s programs on our website and support our work to maintain a safe and creative outdoor space for children, youth, and families in East Oakland and beyond at anvfarm.org.
Phat Beets Produce has played a major role by providing fresh local produce to more than 300 Bay Area families per week “Beet Box” CSA. ANV’s set of experiences makes us uniquely qualified to uphold the Phat Beets mission—to connect small farmers of color to flatland communities while creating equitable access to healthy, affordable produce.
“I love all the produce of course, but your commitment to the community, social justice, food justice, environmental justice, food accessibility, supporting small farmers of color- just everything. I love everything about Phat Beets and my beet boxes over the last few years. Luckily I also LOVE Acta Non Verba and know that y'all share the same values and commitments. I'm happy the Beet Box will be in good hands.” -Beet Box Supporter
