The Fruitvale Community Garden functions to provide sustainability and wellness to Oakland locals. CURYJ members helped establish the Fruitvale Community Garden alongside community members and the Stop the Injunctions Coalition.

CURYJ believes that establishing more spaces for sustainable agriculture in Oakland will support increased self-determination and sufficiency in our communities. We also see these spaces as vital components to healing our young people who are impacted by violence, since they are sites where young people can reconnect with their culture and learn tangible skills for healthy living.
