CA - Cucamonga Valley Chapter

Event: Outing to Huerta Del Valle (Ontario, CA)

June 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

HMN will enjoy a tour, lunch meal (cost $10), and volunteer session at the Huerta Del Valle community garden.
Huerta Del Valle’s goal is to provide all 160,000 people in the city of Ontario with accessible organic food.
“We are here to create jobs, to provide food justice education, to change the food system both locally in Ontario and outside in other places. We hope other communities follow our example by embracing a different way of life.”   The tour will include: community garden plots, greenhouse, community composting, vermi-composting, organic commercial agriculture production, educational center plans, and sustainable fruit orchard.
Please bring clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, close-toed shoes, sun protection, and water. Huerta has some tools but if you would prefer to bring your own gardening tools please do so. We try our best to accommodate volunteers of all ages and abilities, so having the children with us will be just fine, and they can get in on the fun too!
We encourage one lunch order per family par-taking in this special outing.  Also, Huerta would like an approximation of our HMN peeps attending.
Please RSVP BY TEXT (909.297.6905) the following:
First and Last Name, Number of People in your party, as well as Number of Lunches you would like to order.
