Sunset Vista Community Garden & Learning Center, Inc.
BE A FOOD ADVOCATE AND SPONSOR A HARVEST PLOT
We at Sunset Vista, along with our wonderful donors are fierce advocates for everyone in the county to be fed and provide for themselves by growing their own healthful, fresh food. We are committed to helping others who are food-insecure. We offer a "grassroots" response to hunger in our community by offering at NO CHARGE garden plots for the food-insecure to grow their own food. We help our gardeners, we teach them, and they become part of our garden family. Help us fulfill our commitment to the children and families, the disabled and our seniors, and sponsor a garden plot for someone who cannot afford to lease a plot themselves.
