Community Partners 4 Innovation (CP4I) believes WE CAN FEED OURSELVES TOGETHER. Our mission is to increase food security, green space, and community education in Pomona, Calif. Lopez Urban Farm, and Esperanza Community Farm are community wellness projects of CP4I.
We are seeking urban agriculture volunteers to participate in the running of a small urban farm - Lopez Urban Farm in Pomona. Last year we grew 100,000 pounds of food for the community. This year we hope to double that. 100% of the food grown at Lopez Urban Farm is donation-based. Volunteers will work with Farmer Stephen Yorba (UC Master Gardener) on the day-to-day tasks allowing them to support food access in Pomona and gain hands-on experience in urban farming. Many of our volunteers go on to grow their own food at home after just a few visits! Tasks include planting, weeding, harvesting, and washing. Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes, and sun protection, and bring their own water to drink.
