The Abundant Table is a grassroots, nonprofit organization that seeks to change lives and systems by creating sustainable relationships to the land and local community. Our 5-acre farm in Santa Paula, CA is the land that supports our farm-to-school, agricultural and nutrition education, youth development and faith-rooted initiatives. Proceeds from our community supported agriculture (CSA) vegetable sales support this valued community work. We invite you to join in The Abundant Table’s mission and connect land, spirituality and community. We wish to acknowledge the support of the University of California Cooperative Extension and the Hansen Agriculture Research and Extension Center (HAREC) for our “Join the Farm! program” at the HAREC Faulkner Farm site.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a simple way of building a direct relationship between the farmer, farm, food and customer (you!). Purchasing a Join the Farm! CSA subscription confers meaningful benefits to you, your family and your community.
Over a thousand students, preschoolers, elementary classes, youth groups, GATE groups, and college students have visited the farm for hands-on learning experiences that engage their bodies, senses, and minds while exploring the farm eco-system.
Practicing sustainable agriculture in an urban area can be a powerful tool in supporting the health of social, economic, ecological and environmental systems. To that end, the Abundant Table provides hands-on training in urban agriculture at the farm, and every intern leaves with the skills and confidence to design, build and maintain an urban garden.
