Vallejo’s People’s Garden is a non-profit collaboration of multiple volunteers which provides fresh produce for the community.

VPG promotes health and wellness by growing organic fruits and vegetables for those who are in need and they also create educational opportunities for children and adults.

VPG educates the community about  agriculture and the environment to prepare them for future gardening and farming skills.

Programs VPG offer are: the Harvest Sharing Program, which offers fresh organic produce to food banks, homeless centers, and senior lunch centers;  Green for Green sells seeds to help sustain VPG programs, and Youth Educations engages groups, classes and neighborhood and neighborhood children in on-farm activities and learning.

Vallejo People’s Garden is always looking for extra volunteers and people to help them expand in helping the community doing simple tasks such as; planting, composting, harvesting, seeding and more.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
