Fairview Gardens

The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens is a California non-profit organization established in 1997 to preserve and operate the historic farm where our products are grown. On our twelve and a half acres, we produce one hundred different fruits and vegetables. We also nourish the community in less tangible ways through festivals, workshops, tours, lectures, cooking and gardening classes, internships, and outreach and consultation to schools and communities nationwide.

The Fairview Gardens CSA program is so valuable to our community and such a wonderful part of my week. We look forward to the weekly trip to the farm stand to pick up our share, chat with farm staffers, and catch up with other members.... [more]

I have been going to Fairview Gardens since I was a child in the 80s. It is a part of Goleta that has not changed much and I hope stays as it is for future generations to enjoy! Just great local organic produce!
