So far in our short history Huerta del Valle has accomplished a lot. Name changes, making lots of compost, growing healthy food and making connections all over Ontario that will benefit our project in the long run.
We still have never had a location that we can call home until now!!!...
We have arrived at HDVs new location for our community food project! A 4-acre site next to a beautiful park in the heart of the city!
Huerta del Valle has been working with the city of Ontario (learn more about Ontario's health initiatives) to become a player in the HEAL grant from Kaiser Permanente. Over the next three years HDV will transform this space into a community center and learning lab for healthy local food and more! And we don't plan to be around for just three years, this is just the beginning. Check back soon for updates!
A few photos from our first site visit. We went to the site with Karen and Cathy from city planning to talk about our visions for the space.
Algunas fotos de nuestra primera visita al sitio. Ahí fuimos con Karen y Cathy del departamento de Planificación de la Ciudad para hablar de nuestras visiones para el espacio.
Lucy and Maria talked with Karen about the future main entrance!

And of course we had to do the whole walk around. It was really uplifting to get a feel for how this whole operation will work.
We were also visited by some Pitzer students the week before doing a class on California Food Systems. We got to show them the site from the outside and talk about local food issues with Maria.
This site will be so beneficial to everyone as an educational space.
También nos visitaron algunos estudiantes de Pitzer hace algunas semanas antes de tomar una clase sobre los Sistemas Alimenticias de California. Tuvimos la oportunidad de mostrarles el sitio desde afuera y hablar con Maria sobre algunos temas de comida local. Este sitio va a beneficiar tanto a la gente como espacio educativo.
