Gault Farm Stand with Josh & Natasha

Josh and Natasha run the Farm Stand at Gault Elementary on Wednesday. We sell high quality organic produce at low cost with the intention of increasing access to good food for the local community as well as attempting to connect what children learn in school about healthy eating and what they eat at home. We partner with the UCSC Farm, Happy Boy Farms, and FreeWheelin' Farm to provide food at the stand. On most days we sell out of the produce, and many families go home with armfuls of fresh veggies.

Natasha says she likes, "interacting with the people, the people are interesting" and Josh likes "seeing all the little kids going home stoked on veggies". They both agree that they're gaining math and communication skills from running the farm stand.
