My brother Paul Callis is teaching a special needs high school class with
the Oakland Teaching Fellows at a school in Oakland and is in the beginning
stages of starting a school garden. One of his students was just murdered
this week, and another student was killed at the start of this semester, the
school garden project will hopefully be able to take on a grieving and
healing, as well as transformative role for them.

I am writing to rustle up anyone in the vicinity of Oakland who might be
interested in getting their hands dirty, lending their brain power, and/or
contributing their local resource knowledge. We will need help designing the
garden, implementing permaculture design, building it, getting trees and
plants planted etc. So if you're in the area or know of someone that is and
who would have interest, please contact me or Paul, or forward this email.

All the best,
