“What’s your best idea to make cities more successful?”

The 2016 Knight Cities Challenge asks this simple and elegant question, to which any one of us might pose a very different answer.  Here at Veggielution, we tend to believe that the best ideas always involve food. Food to nourish, to teach, to connect, and to celebrate. And East San Jose, where Veggielution calls home, is steeped in rich culinary traditions and discoveries.  ¡Qué maravilla!! Which is why our best idea to make San Jose more successful is a local food hub for economic development, cross-cultural exchange, and shared learning opportunities right here at Emma Prusch Farm Park.  We are thrilled to have been selected as a Knight Cities Challenges finalist!  Please keep your fingers crossed with us until winners are announced in early spring.  Or, better yet, reach out to us if you would like to learn more about how you can support our application.
