Description

Join us on September 23rd for the grand opening of our new location! Come and see our demonstration garden, tour our new greenhouse, and learn about upcoming events for the community! This is a kid friend event. Refreshments and food will be offered.

Valley Verde is the first nonprofit in San Jose to use The Urban Agricultural Incentive Zones Act (AB551), a policy allows urban agricultural organization to lease land from private landowner at a lower cost for urban agricultural puroses. Valley Verde's mission is to develop and support programs that improve the health of Santa Clara County residents and empower them with the knowledge and skills to provide locally grown, organic vegetables for their families and communities. We accomplish this by: 1) teaching gardening and healthy eating skills that meet each family's cultural needs, 2) fostering a sense of community as gardeners, 3) raising awareness of health and environmental issues, and 4) creating leadership and entrepreneurship opportunities to revitalize low-income communities. Valley Verde serves approximately 140 low-income families (645 individuals) each year in San Jose, CA and Gilroy, CA.
