Oakland Urban Farm
Kelly Carlisle wants the youngsters in her neighborhood to not only eat healthier meals, but also to take an active role in providing food to the community. Kelly oversees a program called “The Youth Urban Farm Project” in the heart of Oakland, California.

Kelly began the urban farm program after serving in the U.S. Navy. Young people tend extensive gardens in land that would otherwise stand empty. The lessons learned here are part of Kelly’s effort to move youngsters away from crime and take pro-active steps to insure their future.
