The Planting Justice team worked with Beth Waitkus and the Insight Garden Program to build four raised beds on the grounds of the H-Unit at San Quentin State Prison — one of the only sanctioned vegetable gardens in California. Over four days, men enrolled in the Insight Garden Program helped break up asphalt on the prison grounds to make way for the new vegetable garden and put in some much-needed hard work on the construction of the perimeter fence, filling the beds with over 10 yards of compost, mulching the area surrounding the beds, and planting them up with young vegetables and herbs. Over the course of the growing season, inmates will be learning permaculture principles, conflict resolution skills and ultimately receive

“What does it mean to be a human being?” asks (r)evolutionary activist/philosopher, philosopher/activist Grace Lee Boggs. After participating, studying and carefully reflecting on the revolutions of the past 100 years, Grace re-minds us what is at stake in our social movements for justice. She reminds us that we are involved in a struggle to continue moving the social itself, to keep pushing the boundaries of our collective humanity. Our movements become (r)evolutionary the moment they transcend oppressions in ways that dismantle multiple barriers to our connectivity, challenging us all to become more human together. We move in community, move socially, towards “new” understandings of being human. In conversation and co-creation with her partner Jimmy Boggs, they remind us that “just because we were born from our mother’s womb doesn’t make us human beings.” To be human is to be in the process of becoming human. Lest we forget, Grace and Jimmy Boggs are fundamental abuelit@s for our food justice movements. Along with the youth from Detroit Summer, Grace and Jimmy shaped the contours of what we even understand today as ‘food justice’, that is the struggle for the restoration of our humanity through the regeneration of our local and global food systems and the land itself.

Planting Justice just launched a new blog - Compost the Empire - to collectivize food justice stories, permaculture knowledge and organizing strategies. Initially the blog is hosting a lot of Planting Justice content, but we are excited for it to transition into a community space for global food justice efforts. Please check it out below and let us know if you have any thing you would like to share, re-post and collaborate on!! So far we have some great articles about oppression in the food movement, instructional videos about irrigation and raised beds, examples of inspiring urban permaculture transformations and some great plant bios. We also have a community calendar for Bay Area folks and beyond. Enjoy!

I am definitely interested in living and working at a fist-year permaculture farm in Sweden.  How can I reach you to ask further questions?  I am thinking of traveling to Europe this Fall.  Thanks.  Wiley
This sounds both fun and interesting.  What's the best way to get in touch with you for more info?  Email?

Thanks
