Support Seed the Commons

Seed the Commons is a small, all-volunteer organization based in San Francisco. We work to build local food resiliency through advocacy campaigns and educational, hands-on projects.

Our flagship campaign, #GetMilkOut of public school meals in San Francisco, was launched September 30, 2017. It aims to diminish health disparities in San Francisco children caused by pro-corporate policies coming from Washington, D.C. and Sacramento.

Our other projects include: 

  • The yearly People’s Harvest Forum – the first conference in the world that promotes food sovereignty and agroecology while working within a vegan ethic. Participants gain an in-depth understanding of the state of our food system along with how they can engage at various levels to help create a more just and sustainable food system. We invite vegan farmers to share their knowledge, giving veganic farming a visibility and normalcy that are absent from other spaces devoted to radical food politics and sustainable agriculture.
  • Growing food veganically in San Francisco and South Bay for the benefit of our local community and ecology.
  • We offer the first veganic gardening classes in California. As we give people tools to grow their own food, we slash the myth that sustainable agriculture requires animal inputs. Our classes are donation-based so as to be accessible to people of all income levels.
  • An online veganic resource center that features a growing series of profiles of veganic farmers.
