Looking for local and organic gifts that also support a very good cause?  We have what you are looking for!!  The Homeless Garden Project makes a variety of food, bath & body and candle products using dried flowers, herbs and beeswax from our Organic farm. The trainees in our program have been a part of the whole life of these products - from planting, tending, and harvesting the crops on the farm, to making and packaging the products for selling. We also feature over 30 local artists that donate 50% of the sales proceeds to the Project.  Come in any day through December 24th!

We are located at 1338 Pacific Ave, between El Palomar and Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting.  We're open Nov. 12th - Dec. 6th: 11 AM - 7 PM and Dec. 7th - Dec. 24th: 10 AM - 8 PM.  We will be holding special events at this location throughout the season. Check our Facebook for more details on events: https://www.facebook.com/HomelessGardenProject/

For over 26 years, The Homeless Garden Project has been serving the community by providing job training and transitional employment to people who are experiencing homelessness.  The Downtown Store serves as an extension to the Project by providing a space to sell organic baking mixes, all natural bath & body products and hand dipped candles – using herbs and flowers from our 3.5-acre organic farm. The store also features local artisans ranging from hand-crafted jewelry, pottery, photography and other art medias.  Your purchase supports our job training and transitional employment program.
