  • The most important group of people we work with are homeless trainees. That makes up a piece of what we’re doing, but we’re [also] working with
    youth from the university,
    kids from schools in the area;
    people come to do community service.

    Volunteers—on any given day at the Homeless Garden Project, you’ll have the richest to the poorest in Santa Cruz working together, farming together. And we eat together every single day. We sit down over a meal, and it can be very powerful for people, in the best days, when the homeless are teaching the housed how to grow their own food, a real role reversal.
