Our mission is to cultivate an organization of community members to grow our own organic crops. Through growing our food we work toward sustainable community empowerment and health: creating meaningful work, building lasting skills and developing strong relationships within the city of Ontario. Nuestra misi?n es cultivar una organizaci?n comunitaria para crecer nuestras propias cosechas org?nicas. A trav?s de crecer nuestra comida, buscamos el fortalecimiento y salud comunitarios sostenible: crear trabajo significativo, fomentar habilidades durables y desarrollar relaciones fuertes dentro de la ciudad de Ontario. Our vision is to build a garden every mile in our city and build a better food system and while the food system grows so will our community.
We want to see garden members, who are everyday people in Ontario, working actively to build the Ontario/region/society they want to see.
We want to nurture research by Ontario youth and adults about environmental detriments and their solutions.
We want Huerta del Valle to be a space for building political analysis and capacity for action.
We want HDV to be a training center to grow the crop of committed individuals who can make "the garden every mile" a reality and shift the food system in our region toward a healthy, nutritious, sustainable, and just one.
Huerta del Valle is a laboratory to bring forth solutions that address stress, economic struggles, and chronic health issues through leadership development, civic engagement, and organic fruit and vegetable production in the community by the community.
