Self-Sustaining Communities

This organization operates primarily, but not exclusively, in Richmond,
CA. Materials are provided to low income environments to create urban
farms by the community including beehives, fruit trees, aquaponics,
rainwater harvesting, chickens, rabbits, and more. Additionally, over
10,000 fruit, nut and olive trees are distributed directly to city
residents for city-wide greening and food production. Ongoing efforts to
develop community housing structures out of green and natural materials
are currently in place. Opportunities for hands-on participation, for
“behind the scenes” paperwork and networking, website maintenance, etc.,
are all available.

The information above can be found on the official website of Self-Sustaining Communities. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website:
