Canal Alliance

The Canal Alliance is a comprehensive community resource center that has been serving Marin’s low-income immigrant populations since 1982. Planting Justice has been helping the Canal Alliance to build several community gardens around the large apartment complexes in the Canal District of San Rafael. Each summer since 2011, Planting Justice has helped to lead summer programming for 20 youth (ages ranging from 12-18) in which these youth and their adult allies learn about permaculture design and food justice issues, start community gardens, and continue to maintain them throughout the seasons.
