All-Community Service Opportunity at Costanoa Farms

  • Costanoa Commons Farm 335 Golf Club Drive Santa Cruz, CA 95060 United States (map)

Want to learn about organic urban farming and work alongside the differently-abled residents at Costanoa Commons Farm in Santa Cruz?

Join Catholic Community at Stanford on Saturday, April 13 to volunteer at Costanoa Commons, an urban farming community for people with and without developmental disabilities. Costanoa is dedicated to enhancing food security in local communities and making farming accessible for all -- it is truly a place where people can “learn new new skills, strengthen their social networks, and contribute valued products to our local economy,”

We’ll plant, care for chickens, and work alongside the Costanoa community. Lunch will be provided. We’ll also have a discussion about sustainability, ecological stewardship and Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment!

People of all ages, religious/non-religious backgrounds, and abilities are welcome. We’ll leave Stanford at 8:45am and return by 3:00pm. RSVP by Friday, April 5, so that we can plan for carpools and lunches.

Email Fr. Dominic ( or Isabela Bumanlag ( for any questions and concerns.

This event is sponsored by FIAT (the Faith-in-Action Team) of the Catholic Community at Stanford. Catholic Social Justice Teaching celebrates the importance of Caring for God’s Creation.
