We're committed to creating a sustainable, local food system that builds community, improves access to healthy food, and teaches residents to cultivate their own fruits and vegetables.
Garden To Table’s mission is to create a sustainable local food system that builds community, improves access to healthy food, and teaches residents how to cultivate their own fruits and vegetables. Over the past three years, we've built 8 neighborhood gardens at apartment buildings, schools, and homes in Central San Jose, harvested and donated over 30,000 pounds of fruit from neighborhood trees to local food programs, and conducted numerous gardening and nutrition classes for community members and elementary school students.
In October of 2013, we transformed a vacant lot and began building an urban farm in downtown San Jose. The ultimate goals of the farm are three-fold: provide access to fresh produce; act as our main educational venue to benefit the broader community; and provide a steady source of revenue to sustain our organization.
We believe that this model, with a farm as the anchor that is surrounded with neighborhood gardens and fruit harvesting events, can act as the foundation of a more self-sustaining local food system that can be replicated throughout the City.
