Healthy Food and CLTs

OakCLT was established as a tool to steward land and housing for the permanent benefit of the community. While the stewardship of affordable housing is the most common role that CLTs play, many also steward other beneficial community uses. OakCLT is in the midst of developing a plan to support urban agricultural and community gardening activity in Oakland.  Our primary role will be to acquire and provide secure access to land for residents and organizations looking to grow their own produce.  Recognizing that fresh food options can be scarce (and often prohibitively expensive) in East and West Oakland, active urban agriculture and community gardens can serve as a healthy and locally accessible source of vegetables and fruits for neighborhood residents.  OakCLT will support the gardening efforts of land trust homeowners, as well as residents and organizations already engaged in agricultural activities.

For now, check out the great work of our friends and allies in Oakland working on food access and justice issues:

Income & Asset Building
The Alameda County Community Asset Network (ACCAN) is a working group of service providers, advocates, community-based organizations, public agencies, and base-building organizations that work in partnership and with other stakeholders committed to increasing the income and assets of Alameda County residents.

AC CAN's Mission

Alameda County CAN's mission is to provide a continuum of strategies, services and activities that serve all low to moderate income Alameda County residents in every phase of increasing their income and assets.

AC CAN's Philosophy

We believe that people should be met where they're at in their income and asset development efforts and that effective, relationship-based services and products should be appropriate to their needs.
