Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate and create a network of food systems that builds community and improves access to healthy food.

Description

Urban residents have been disconnected from where their food comes from for generations and Garden to Table believes this is a central reason why public health has steadily deteriorated. Food is a fundamental part of everyday life and it should be grown where people live.

In October of 2013, Garden to Table installed 2,500 square feet of raised beds on a previously vacant lot to develop Taylor St Farm. It is a one acre urban farm located in downtown San Jose.
Our mission is to educate and create a network of food systems that builds community and improves access to healthy food. We do this by growing unique and delicious produce on our farm, educating the public. ​We strive to transform the way cities are fed and connect people with great local food!

I had the pleasure of interning with Garden to Table as their Fruit Picking intern earlier this year. The experience in working with the dedicated staff and the community was extremely rewarding. I would definitely recommend Garden to Table as an excellent organization that's really working towards providing a sustainable local food system throughout the Downtown San Jose area!

Garden To Table is an Excellent organization which provides volunteers to both contribute, shine and experience the very physical labor as kids heard in many fairy tails. The difference is, the volunteer effort affect every community member who benefits from the harvest and hard work and dedication of every volunteer. The staff coordinated by Lan is Extremely friendly and easy to reach. All staff members are passionate communicators, excellent at assisting volunteers in need and Very clear about the goal. Every day is laid out according to a plan. They are a very honorable organization that Deserves many eyes, and its a way of giving back to the community. Garden To Table exposed me to how many people need help and how its Not Hard to give back to Our community.

I've been volunteering at Horace Mann Elementary under the Garden to Table organization for my CHAD class at SJSU, and I've learned that it has very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful members. They're very dedicated to the community and teaching children about the benefits healthy food and the importance of growing fruits of vegetables. With many fun opportunities, Garden to Table is an awesome organization to volunteer for.
