Our Commitment to Social Justice

Our Commitment to Social Justice

Organic Growers School seeks to transform the food system into one that truly serves the needs of all communities, creating social and environmental ecosystems that thrive by empowering people to farm, garden, and live organically. We recognize that in order to reach this vision, it is necessary to understand the impact that historical oppression and systemic racism have had on the food system.

We are committed to prioritizing social justice and inclusiveness within all of our operations. We define diversity in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, culture, socioeconomic status, personality, ability, education, geographic region, age, experience, values, politics, appearance, religion, mental health, and immigration status.

We recognize that we have made mistakes in the past, and that there is a lot of work ahead of us. We commit to the on-going work through trainings, relationship building, partnerships, and program development, to dismantle social injustice in OGS and in the food system for the ultimate goal of food justice for all.
