San Jose, CA, – San Jose’s newest non-profit urban farm was generously donated by Barry Swenson Builder (BSB); Garden to Table’s farm is also in partnership with San Jose Museum of Art to present a series called Around the Table. This event will take place on January 18 from noon until 1pm at the farm site located at 200 West Taylor Street. Garden to Table will be showing the community how the urbanized land will impact the local food system. During the Around the Table event, representatives will talk about the vision for the farm, thank BSB for its donation of the land, present a check from partners at EBay, provide a tour of the facilities, and hold a Q&A session.
Starting in spring 2014, Garden to Table Silicon Valley will be holding free monthly workshops that will be open to the public. In addition, the farm will be installing ten community garden plots on site for residents living within a ¼ mile of the farm to grow their own food. During summer months, the farm will open a small stand and keep their gates open during working hours to answer any questions the public might have about growing and cooking farm grown food. The farm will use the revenue it generates on the farm to build additional neighborhood gardens and organize fruit harvesting events. With the help of BSB and other generous partnerships, Garden to Table Silicon Valley strives to create a sustainable local food system.
