Produce Stand is open every Saturday 10am – 1pm and Farm-Fresh Direct is open Tuesday – Saturday. Please help save the environment and bring your own bag.
Youth who are enrolled in any SGVCC program have the ability to join the Healthy Harvesters program. Some of our youth attend the Youth Build Charter High School and others are enrolled into our various work programs.
Our youth workers, 95% are Latino, and between 16-24 years old, living at poverty level, and are considered at risk of dropping out of their local high schools.
