Esperanza Community Farm
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. The farm is operated as a non-profit project. It is fiscally sponsored by the local Second Harvest Food Bank and independently operated. Their small but mighty team of 4 staff-of-color also depends on 10 volunteers to harvest pack and deliver CSA baskets twice weekly to 150 families in the Pajaro Valley. 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.
