We’ve had much to celebrate over here at OFPC! Not only have we hustled our way into our fifth year as an organization with increased leadership but we had a big win this year. City Council supported Oaklanders in their right to feed themselves! Read more here. We brought in the fifth year with our supporters at Warehouse 416 while being graced by the sounds of DJ Leydis and Earth Amplified! Food First covered the event nicely here. We are looking forward to the coming year at OFPC. With many amazing members joining us, we expect a bountiful year.
OFPC continues our work to access land for growing food by recommending Priority Conservation Areas that will provide climate protection and food space. We invite you to join an upcoming community gathering to share your ideas! Where can Oakland be more Green? Where should green infrastructure be planned for the health and sustainability of Oakland and our most vulnerable residents?
Place your Priority Conservation Areas on Oakland’s map. Help identify spaces that: help reduce greenhouse gases; encourage people to walk, ride, bike & skate; beautify and inspire; reduce urban heat island, flood risk, food insecurity, air pollution; provide recreation and open space, urban gardens & access to nature; protect areas of natural habitat/biodiversity … all while creating job opportunities for Oakland residents!
