Recently, Huerta del Valle Community Garden opened its second location in Jurupa Valley. Jurupa City and Riverside County authorities celebrated the event.
The Garden will give an opportunity for the members of the Jurupa City community to cultivate their own organic vegetables.
Jurupa Valley is one of the Riverside County cities where low income families do not have access to a healthy food diet, State Assemblymember 60th District in Western Riverside County, Sabrina Cervantes, stated in her speech during the inauguration ceremony. “Over 1 million people in the Inland Empire live in food deserts and struggle to access fresh and nutritious food.”
Huerta de Valle Community Garden brings equal access to fresh and healthy foods to our inland communities. Huerta del Valle started at Bon View Park in the City of Ontario with founders Maria Alonso from Ontario and Arthur Levine, a Pitzer College graduate of Nueroscience saw the need to provide healthy organic vegetables to Ontario and other communities in the Inland Empire.
