PROJECT: Planting Justice – Stanislaus
In 2014 FFI contributed $1,000 Planting Justice Support for their work with incarcerated youth at the Stanislaus Juvenile Detention Garden. Funds were used to purchase plant starters (vegetables, herbs and flowers), educational materials and to construct 12 raised beds filled with peppers, eggplants, strawberries, melons, tomatoes and marigolds.
The food grown will be used in the kitchen and culinary arts program, while cultivating teamwork, job skills, and a sense of achievement and a connection with the Earth.
