Santa Cruz’s Homeless Garden Project is hosting “Kalefest” on Saturday March 31 at its Natural Bridges Farm, located at the intersection of Shaffer Road and Delaware in Westside Santa Cruz.
At the 12-4pm Homeless Garden Project (HGP) festival, guests will enjoy hourly farm tours, gardening workshops, a raffle, and cooking demos. In addition, there will be live music, a “kids’ kale kingdom,” and lots of food and refreshments including a beer garden.
There will also be two contests: one for “best bunch of kale” and one for “best kale recipe” (top recipes will be featured in HGP’s upcoming cookbook).

Founded in 1990, HGP offers many programs – some of whch take place in a 2.5-acre organic farm. The organization also operates an organic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program) from May-October. Get more details on the CSA (it’s wonderful!) at the HGP web site.
