Veggielution Community Farm
Veggielution Community Farm...
We utilizes a unique community farm model that mobilizes volunteers to cultivate and grow healthy crops, which are then made available to our program participants and other local residents. Our 6-acre community farm and gathering space is located in Emma Prusch Farm Park in the Mayfair neighborhood.
Learn more about the farm here.
Every Saturday in the Veggielution Youth Garden we engage children and teens, helping them develop a clear food-land connection and fostering environmental stewardship. We also offer an experiential, hands-on field trip program which engages hundreds of middle school students from East San José at Veggielution each year. Learn more about our Eastside Explorers field trip program.
We encourage community residents of all ages connect with leadership opportunities, we offer a diverse roster of programs and the necessary infrastructure to support mentorship and hands-on experiential learning related to every aspect of our urban farm operation. Local community residents are be invited to join our lead Veggielution Cocina cooking classes, attend middle school field trips, and even share their favorite recipes with the local community from our food truck at offsite events.
We grow over 30,000 pounds of produce using organic and sustainable growing practices. Over 60% of the produce we grow is distributed to our East San José community residents through low-cost channels, including our farm stand and donations to Veggielution volunteers and program participants.
