Even though I am only a junior I am working my senior journalism capstone this year for my communication degree (a capstone is much like a senior thesis. Next year I will do a different senior project for my environmental studies degree). I am writing about the growing food movement in Santa Clara County, and my research quickly led me to Veggielution, a community farm in San Jose.
Veggielution began it's journey in 2007 in four backyards with San Jose State students. Since then it has grown into a farm on 2.5 acres. The land is used to produce crops that are low cost or free to the community, educate people about gardening/farming, and serve as a beautiful space for people to relax and connect with the nature and people around them.
I'm falling in love with my capstone project, and I can't wait to visit more incredible places like Veggielution.
