The land for this 42-acre (17.0 ha) farm park was donated by Emma Prusch to San Jose, California in 1962 to keep for agricultural purposes, and provides an introduction to farm life. The park is operated as a small farm by the City of San Jose, Department of Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Services. Barn space is provided to city kids in the 4-H and Future Farmers of America so they can experience farming practices in an urban environment. The farm also has a rare fruit orchard, a deciduous fruit orchard and two community gardens, and a 6-acre (24,000 m2) urban farming project called Veggielution. In the spring, the park offers guided tours for K–3 school groups. These tours provide a sensory education emphasis while students learn about gardens, fruit orchard, poultry and livestock.
Veggielution Community Farm; On a little over 6-acre (24,000 m2) Veggielution empowers youth and adults from diverse backgrounds to create a sustainable food system in San Jose.
