Cesar Chavez Day of Service, 3 April | Event in Santa Cruz | AllEvents.in Cesar Chavez Day of Service
Cesar Chavez Day of Service at the Homeless Garden Project Farm
Homeless Garden Project Farm is located on Shaffer Road at Delaware Ave., on the westside of Santa Cruz near Natural Bridges State Park and the Long Marine Lab.

We are postponing our Cesar Chavez Day of Service to Saturday, April 3, 2021, 9:30-2 PM.
We'll confirm details as the date approaches.

Service is a deep value at Homeless Garden Project. In light of COVID-19, we are postponing the work day till 2021 right after Cesar Chavez's birthday. We recognize the impact of your volunteer service and are so grateful to you. We still need your volunteer and financial support and are working to keep our community healthy.

To minimize farm congestion and maintain adequate social distancing to mitigate COVID-19 transmission risk, we are re-introducing farm volunteering with limited availability. For more information about our farm policies for coronavirus mitigation and to sign up for a volunteer shift, please go here: https://bit.ly/signupvlntr

We ask that you sign up before showing up to volunteer.

To reach out to you during coronavirus, we created a video presenting podcast host and author, Jennifer Jewell reading from "The Earth in Her Hands," and our trainee, Jenn Hargrove, speaking about her experience in our program. You can view this 50 minute video here: https://bit.ly/jennstalk

We'll reach out more during 2020 to celebrate our 30th birthday with you! Please stay tuned.

Thank you for your continued effort to build a stronger, more vibrant community, and for partnering with us "in the soil of our urban farm and garden [to help people] find the tools they need to build a home in the world."

Our trainees made a short video in honor of Cesar Chavez. You can see it here: https://bit.ly/Chvzvid

Cesar Chavez was a civil rights and farm worker leader, a community organizer and social entrepreneur, a champion of nonviolent social change, and an advocate for the environment, consumer rights and education. Chavez labored as a migrant worker in California, where he was exposed to the injustices of farm worker life. Using nonviolent and grassroots tactics, Chavez co-founded the National Farm Workers Association (later known as the United Farm Workers Union). The state of California celebrates his birthday at the end of March to honor the many victories his activism brought to these communities.

Chavez’s motto, "Si se puede!" ("Yes, it can be done!"), coined during his 1972 fast in Arizona, embodies the legacy he left for people around the world, one which inspires the work of the Homeless Garden Project every day. His work and legacy transcend any single cause or struggle.
