We Invite Our Local Community to Enjoy Our Organic Farms and Bountiful Produce
Our current working farm is Natural Bridges Farm, located on the West Side of Santa Cruz near Natural Bridges State Park. You can buy fresh organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers from our Farm Stand or become a member of our Community Support Agriculture (CSA) program. In partnership with the City of Santa Cruz, we have also started planning for our new permanent farm in Pogonip. This new farm will triple our job training capacity through a public-private partnership. Serving as a national model, the Homeless Garden Project's Pogonip Farm will be at the heart of our dynamic agriculture programs.
Our organic, seasonal vegetables grown at the farm are available at our Farm Stand, through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) memberships and at select local restaurants. Learn how you can enjoy our farm's abundance.
Products That Give Back
In addition to offering organic produce through our farm and CSA, we also develop a variety of amazing gifts and handmade crafts produced by the people in the employment training program. All of the proceeds go towards supporting the Homeless Garden Project and our programs. You can get a preview of some of the products here or come stop by one of our stores! Plus keep an eye out… the Homeless Garden Project is now selling a few select products in New Leaf Community Market and other local stores. We can't do this without you! Our partnership with our dedicated community of customers, volunteers, and donors are key to our success.
