Get Plugged In With The Beets!

Organize!

Phat Beets Produce works in a committee based format using neighborhood based working groups.  Most of our work is done through this decentralized format in order to maximize community input and participation.  See below on ways to get plugged in.

Edible Parks Initiative

This working group is a collaboration of 6 different organizations working to change city policy around edible landscaping in Oakland. Meetings are 1-2 times per month.


Farmers Market Committee

We moved our Saturday farmers market to 942 Lowell St. in north Oakland, and formed a new farmers market committee. This committee organizes the entertainment, maintenance, vendors, and neighborhood outreach for the market.
Meetings: 2nd Wednesday of each month.

Contact: amman@phatbeetsproduce.org for more info.

Dover St. Garden Committee

This committee maintains the community garden on Dover & 58th St., including hosting garden work parties and other events in the garden.

Contact: Chis Vernon vernafami@pacbell.net to get involved.


Volunteer!
If you don’t want to commit to consistent organizing, but can spare a few hours to volunteer, this is for you. We have lots of short and long term volunteer opportunities with our farmers markets, packing CSA boxes, free farm stands outside schools and medical clinics, and community garden. If you’re interested in volunteering, email Heather Leu at  heather@phatbeetsproduce.org
