On 1st Saturdays at Veggielution the diversity of our community comes to life. Whether through exploration of our Youth Garden, morning stretching during Yoga Class, or the sights and sounds of our kitchen during Veggielution Cocina, our farm instills a strong sense of connection among participants from many different backgrounds. Over 100 community members of all ages flow seamlessly between activities; planting in the fields, joining our free Art in the Garden program and making new friends along the way. Throughout the day local residents shop at our Farm Stand for fresh, organic produce grown onsite and harvested by our volunteer community farmers.
10:00am to 12:30pm
Veggielution Cocina, a community-led cooking class series on the first Saturday of each month. During this 9-session class, East San Jose-based chefs lead local residents in cooking seasonally-centered, culturally relevant recipes.
10:00am to 12:30pm
Come join us at the farm for our weekly Youth Garden Activities. Every Saturday the whole family can enjoy gardening, crafting, and learning together in the Youth Garden. Participating in our Youth Garden activities is a great way to spend time with your children while exploring the garden, learning about healthy lifestyle choices, and discovering the exciting processes of the natural world - not to mention making new friends. This is a unique opportunity to get your hands dirty and become better stewards of the environment as a family.
10am to 2pm
Come visit our Farm Stand at the entrance of the Veggielution farm and pick up some farm fresh veggies, harvested every week by our staff and volunteers. We are committed to providing fresh, locally grown produce to the community at an affordable cost. We gladly accept cash, debit, credit, and EBT (food stamps).
9am to 10pm
What better way to start the day than with some Gentle Vinyassa flow yoga? Join Be The Change instructors at 9 am Saturday for a 50 minute all levels, donation based class. Don't forget a mat!
1:00pm to 3:00pm
From painting, to crayons, and drawing (even with your hands!) join in on all the creative fun! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to tap into their right brain on our beautiful farm setting. There's only one rule! You don't have to color inside the lines.
