Community Supported Agriculture
Camp Joy Gardens is a small, organic family farm that is run as an educational non-profit organization. Since 1971 we have been teaching ourselves and others how to live more sustainable lives through gardening, animal husbandry, food preservation, and other skills of simple living. We offer eight month garden apprenticeships as well as shorter classes on a variety of topics, for children and adults. The fruits of our labor are sold to people in the Santa Cruz Mountains through our CSA. We also sell honey at several local stores, and arrange flowers for weddings and other special events.

Fogline Farm is nestled in the hills above Soquel Village. We grow a variety of vegetable crops as well as raise chickens for meat and eggs and pigs.

Our pick ups are located around Santa Cruz, and our main location is at Main Street Garden Cafe on Main St, Soquel, which is just down the road from the farm.
