Featured Event

Nourish and Flourish: Celebrating 12 Years of Community Growth.

Join us for our annual Party in the Garden
Date: October 19th, 2024
Location: The Collective Venue in Downtown Bakersfield.

In the spirit of our theme this year, “Nourish and Flourish,” we warmly invite you to partake in a celebration that embodies the growth and vitality of our community. For 12 enriching years, nestled within the historic Old Town Kern block of East Bakersfield, our grassroots, volunteer-powered initiative has been a cornerstone in the fight against hunger, providing education, monthly food distributions, and a nurturing space within our community garden.
