OUR BUSINESSES

  One of the most important aspects of our vision is that we intend to sustain our businesses to profitability. Most small and medium size businesses fail early on because they don’t have the capital to sustain themselves. Thus, it is incumbent upon us to generate and invest the capital into these businesses until they can fly on their own. And, it will be incumbent upon those businesses that succeed to re-invest a percentage of their net profits back into OAW for launching and sustaining more businesses.

 

WEST OAKLAND FARMS

West Oakland Farms is located at 7th and Campbell in West Oakland. In late 2014 Oakland & the World Enterprises broke ground on its first business, West Oakland Farms. Our farm is owned and operated by formerly incarcerated individuals facing extreme economic barriers. Providing them a pathway to employment, business ownership and community development. Crops on our farm are produced through organically sustainable growing methods. Since 2015 we have served our clients and community with fresh produce grown in the rich soil of West Oakland.
