The sun is shining and crops are well under way, digging their roots deep within the soil at Tres Santos’ acre-and-a-half organic community garden managed by Elizabeth Ibarra Vivanco. Currently growing are local favorites such as corn, zucchini, baby watermelon, spinach, beats and basil. We can’t forget our collection of cherry, Italian heirloom and grape tomatoes. There are even more treats on the horizon with future crops including Elizabeth’s famous green peas and green beans, peppers (jalapeño, pablano, green), yams, onions and a variety of herbal teas and exotic trees.
The first harvest at the organic community garden, we are still testing the soil’s nutrient quantities to discover how successfully and flavorful the crops produce. Our goal is to serve everyone in the community the freshest and highest quality of organic food available literally from our farm to your table. Anything that doesn’t grow into the top market crop won’t go to waste, but will be donated to areas of our community. Check back for updates as progress continues. It’s not just food; it’s a lifestyle.
