Joe's Pocket Farm
Founded on January 1, 2010, though its history goes back many years and began with a man named Jose Nuñez. Joe, as we called him, farmed a vacant plot of land neighboring his home for many years. It was a jungle of banana trees, tomatoes, mint, and citrus. He gardened daily and shared the fruits of his work with neighbors and the community. After Joe moved away with his family in 2008 the garden was uncared for and became overgrown with weeds and used as a dumping ground, until the youngest of the Luna Reynoso Family, Michael and Michelle, approached National City Council about the Idea of a community garden. In 2010 we re-ignited the spirit & broke ground at Joe's Pocket Farm. Janice, the oldest sister of the Luna Reynoso family, along with family, friends, San Diego Victory Gardens, YALLA, and the support of National City, began the work to transform the garden back its purpose. Mundo Gardens includes Joe's Pocket Farm, which is a community garden in National City, and Mamma's Gold'n'Heal Garden, which is a private garden in Golden Hill open to the community for special events and classes.
San Diego singer/song writer and artist Pablo Aztlan heads the work at Mamma's Gold'n'Heal Garden and teaches art at both locations.
Classes or events at both Mundo Gardens include but are not limited to, gardening, art, nutrition, cooking, music, and yoga. Mundo Gardens Joe's Pocket Farm has been host to the Rancho Roots Fest and a Peace and Dignity 2012 Ceremony Fundraiser. Call to schedule a tour or any classes for your small group. The space is also available to the community for outdoor events.
We bring art, music, and culture to the garden.
Mundo Gardens educates the community on how to cultivate a healthy creative life. Artists and role models are very special to our programs
as they bring a treasure of talents and music to share with the youth in an organic atmosphere.
Encouraging families to learn more about growing healthy foods, connecting to nature, and cultural roots is what we teach and celebrate at Mundo Gardens.
THE GARDEN is TEMPORARILY CLOSED |
