West Oakland Green Initiative
WOGI is a community-based organization that has been operating since 2002. Our mission is to plant trees in West Oakland. Our fiscal sponsor is the Friends of Oakland Parks and Recreation, a 501c(3). We also work closely with the City of Oakland, West Oakland Commerce Association, the Port of Oakland, West Oakland Environmental Indicators, PG&E, West Oakland Project Area Committee, and many other West Oakland neighborhood groups.
WOGI envisions a sustainable, thriving and attractive urban forest, composed of a wide spectrum of trees, shrubs, ground cover, and other vegetation that serve to enhance environmental quality and community health and opportunity. WOGI encompasses the entire eco-system by striving to use local talent, resources and labor thereby promotes commerce and industry along with the well-being of the community.
