Since 2006, Earth Activist Training has been working to
support two community gardens in Bayview Hunters Point,
a predominantly African-American, low-income inner city
neighborhood in San Francisco, plagued by toxins, gang and
police violence, and lack of access to fresh food. We have
worked in partnership nurturing with Hunters Point Family
an organization that runs violence prevention and food justice
programs for at-risk youth.
We've planted, we've weeded, we've volunteered hours of
training time with the youth and the garden coordinators,
and we've brought in resources—from compost tea to the Common
Vision Fruit Tree Tour (see www.commonvision.org
for more information).

A big thank you to all of you who have donated to support our work! And a special shout out to Ron Walton and the folks at Recology, who have supplied our gardens with compost! Check out their site at www.recology.com
