Esperanza Community Farms
Esperanza Community Farms is a 3-acre farm in Watsonville where they grow 20+ types of organic vegetables ranging from leafy greens to snap peas, broccolini, 2 varieties of onions, beets and corn. Esperanza Community Farms is a non-profit organization. Their six-person team includes Guillermo, Alma, Abel, Paco, Sam and Mireya. They also work together with volunteers to harvest pack and deliver CSA baskets twice weekly to 170 families in the Pajaro Valley and Santa Cruz County. The other two key components of the project are a youth-driven Farm-2-Cafeteria pilot at the neighboring High school and the activation of a recently formed a 9 Organic Farmer Co-op. Together these three components complete their vision of realizing an intergenerational, multilingual, transparent and local food chain based on dignity, joy and integrity for all beings.
