Veggielution empowers youth and adults from diverse backgrounds to create a sustainable food system in San Jose. Our urban farm engages the community by providing access to healthy and local food, creating youth leadership opportunities, and developing creative solutions to social and environmental justice issues.
Veggielution is a non-profit community farm dedicated to creating a more sustainable food system in San Jose. We empower people to change the way they think about food by getting their hands in the soil, connecting with the land, and tasting the fruits of their labor.
The Santa Clara Valley, its soil, ecosystem, and watershed are important resources for future generations. We will be a catalyst for food system change by providing local community with access to a unique open space, organic local food, educating people about sustainable farming, and engaging the community to advocate for policy change. We are uniquely equipped to bring people from different backgrounds together in a shared vision of a organic, local food system.
Our farag family foundation became a supporter of Veggielution Community Farm this year. The farm was created in 2008 to help people make healthy food choices and to provide opportunities for connecting with the natural world. They are fostering a sustainable food system through their urban farm that engages the community by providing access to organic and local food, create youth leadership opportunities, and develop creative solutions to environmental and social justice issues.
