Hester Farm is an ROA farm located at Hester School, 1460 The Alameda in San Jose. It is run by community volunteers, college student interns and high school students fulfilling community service hours.

The farm is used for teaching, training and research, and has been operated by the California Native Garden Foundation since 2017. Our partner is the San Jose Evergreen Community College District – Workforce Institute.

The farm is harvested weekly, which is sold at our farm stand at the Rose Garden Farmers’ Market from 9 am to 1 pm each Saturday.
