EVUGP was featured in the Valencia County News Bulletin! Read the article here:
The East Valencia Urban Gardens Program was created from a series of community meetings concerned about becoming more resilient to climate change, specifically with regards to the local food system. As a result, EVUGP supports creating and coordinating community farming and gardening projects to increase the following: access to local fresh fruits and vegetables, economic opportunities, youth and community activities, and soil and water conservation.
Join the community gardens!
We have regularly scheduled work days at the community gardens and you can join anytime!

The East Valencia Community Garden relies on donations from the community to support the start of the community gardens so that the opportunity remains free for participants.
