Many thanks to Jorge and his wonderful family for creating a magnificent meal from their abundant garden and showing us around the farm and the Armstrong home.

Sponsor a Youth Group
Please consider asking your company or a group of friends to adopt a classroom from your local community or to sponsor an inner city classroom for “A Day At the Farm”.
By donating matching funds where “your kids” could plant, harvest or cook while learning about the local food, the watershed, and the sustainable food movement. Jorge Saldana, a wonderful entrepreneurial role model, farmer and community member and other exemplary chefs are participating in this effort. We have several chefs who want to work with students at the farm including:
JUNIOR CHEF’S SOCIETY* with CHEF ROBERT DORSEY* ~The Junior Chef Society (JCS) is a community-based program aimed at creating culinary career opportunities for inner city youth ages 14 – 25. Through urban agriculture, culinary training and job placement within local restaurants they will assist youth in becoming successfully employed and gain an understanding of what it means to be self-sufficient. They envision a future where Oakland youth are woven into the fabric of the local economy and recipients of meaningful jobs. When youth experience healthy eating habits in their communities and develop an appreciation for farm to table food, they often are eager to become active participants in the growth of restaurants in their own backyards.
