A Visit to Valley Verde

TPAers and folks from the South Bay Bioregional Hub joined in for a work day and get-together at Valley Verde in San Jose on September 30.  Valley Verde helps low-income families in San Jose start organic gardening at their own homes. The organization provides training to participants, and those who complete the training get raised beds, soil, help with irrigation, and seedlings each year.

There were plenty of volunteers, so the preparation of beds happened quickly, and plenty of time was left for a Bioregional Hub meeting. The hub’s goal is to help leaders in sustainability and resilience around the bay area connect with one another to learn about what everyone is doing and bring projects closer together.
