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.

 

We are:

  • Community members;
  • TWO community gardens, in El Cerro Mission and Meadow Lake;
  • A growing youth internship program learning everything from planting seeds, to harvesting and selling produce;
  • Kids programs to learn about food and farming and to begin gardening;
  • Free workshops for the community;
  • Cost-share programs to start backyard gardens and conserve water and soil resources (water harvesting, native plants, hoop houses, and more)  

 

Join the community gardens!

We have regularly scheduled work days at the community gardens and you can join anytime!

 

Meadow Lake: TBA

 

El Cerro: TBA
