Our Mission & Future

In the soil of our urban farm and garden, people find the tools they need to build a home in the world.

Read our Mission, Vision, Values Statement

Pogonip Farm, the Homeless Garden Project’s new home located on 9 acres within the City of Santa Cruz’s Pogonip greenbelt property, will triple our job training capacity through a public-private partnership.  Serving as a national model, Pogonip Farm will be the heart of HGP’s dynamic agriculture program for people who are experiencing homelessness by teaching skills that transform lives, as well as provide volunteer opportunities for community members.

HGP will bring a focus on stewardship, conservation and regenerative agriculture principles to Pogonip Farm.

Later in the year, we will invite the greater Santa Cruz community to participate in this extraordinary opportunity for the Homeless Garden Project to make Pogonip Farm a reality. Stay tuned!

Support our work

The Homeless Garden Project's employment-training program serves individuals in Santa Cruz county who are homeless or formerly homeless, who have experienced barriers to employment, and who wish to maintain a stable productive place in society.
