Donate to Dig Deep Farms!
When DSAL was founded, there were very few positive options for recreation or activities for kids after school in the Ashland/Cherryland neighborhoods. As we connected with youth and families, we realized the need to address deeper issues, like unemployment, lack of investment in the unincorporated areas, and social and political disconnection. We now see DSAL’s mission in a larger framework of social equity, community-led economic empowerment, and creative placemaking: creating a profound change in how law enforcement serves the community.
Dig Deep Farms operates two urban farms that add brightness and life to an otherwise drab commercial corridor. We're developing a third on the grounds of the Alameda Juvenile Detention center and a fourth in Union City. Dig Deep Farms Interns, re-entering society after incarceration and help grow our food while learning work skills and earning permaculture certificates. We deliver our produce to our Food as Medicine "Farmacy" through partnerships with local clinics. We are building a food hub that will provide job and entrepreneurship opportunities for local residents.
Thank you so much for considering a donation to DSAL. DSAL and ACSO are doing work that can shift the direction of law enforcement in this country, and we appreciate your contribution.
