From Farm To Fork Blog, Vol 1, Issue 1

Welcome to our new blog promoting the SGVCC Earthworks Farm & Community Garden.

Earthworks Farm is a true community farm dedicated to serving the community, teaching organic farming and healthy eating through providing access of affordable and fresh produce direct from the Farm. Earthworks Farm facilitates many programs in sustainable agriculture, which are open to all age groups. Therefore, we would like to invite you to get to know the farm and perhaps become a volunteer.

First, we would like to start by thanking all our volunteers for their time and efforts in helping us keep our farm a focus of our community. Your contributions do make a difference! Volunteers are the heart of our Farm and therefore we welcome volunteers to join us daily Mon-Sat from 8am-2pm. Volunteer Training Hours are Saturdays from 10am-12noon. Josh Esparza is the Volunteer Coordinator and Trainer.

Our new CSA will be launched in September. If you are interested in having your weekly CSA box, please contact us via info@earthworksfarmgarden.org for more information.
