#SagesNotCages | Insight Garden Fundraiser
Join us at Gazebo Gardens to celebrate the transformative work our Central Valley Community has provided to people in prison through reconnection to nature. Come share food, drinks, and live music with a community that stands at the intersection of environmental, social, and criminal justice reform. Please join us for a fun night together! - Inspiring Speakers - Food by Tree Of Life Fresno - Beer & Wine Garden - Live Music by The Excursions Band - Silent Auction - And More! We’re supporting people, communities, and society coming together to grow our collective wisdom as sages - rather than building more cages! What we do now together will define the world we create for generations to come. Insight Garden Program intentionally and simultaneously addresses racial inequity, economic disparity, and environmental degradation. We transform systems, policies, practices and people working at the intersection of multiple injustices to create a more interconnected, resilient, and healthy world. About Insight Garden Program: Grounded in the belief that access to nature is a human right, Insight Garden’s evidence-based and nationally recognized program empowers people in prison to become food justice leaders, sustainable agriculture advocates, environmental stewards, urban gardeners, community educators, and racial and criminal justice reform advocates within prison and in the communities to which they return.
