it's part of san jose s new urban agriculture program. neighbors get fresh veggies... the property owner gets a tax break.. joining us now to talk about the urban gardening.. tori truscheit with sacred heart community service. who's eligible for the program? are there requirements about how big the plot of land needs to >> thank you for joining us this morning. tell me a little bit about this program. who is eligible? how big does the plot of land need to be? how long do you have to commit to the program? >> we are excited about the opening of the first site for san jose's agriculture incentive zone. property owners can get a tax break if they allow the community to garden on your property. it can not be your back yard. it has to be a property without a dwelling on it. in san jose it has to be one to 1.3 acres.
7:12 am
in santa clara county it can be up to three acres. >> as we saw it, i thought the top down view shows this first fees of land going into service is not that big. it is sandwiched between a used car dealership on one side and an office building on the other. tell me a little bit about how this plot of land is going to be used. >> the great thing about urban culture incentive zones is they can transform vacant lots from blythe in the city to beautiful spaces that the community can use for access to fresh fruits and vegetables. this particular site is going to be a greenhouse or valley verde meadows. they are going to grow seedlings. things like bitter melon and okra will be available for families to come and buy the
7:13 am
seedlings and enjoy food from their home countries they might not find anywhere else. >> this may seem like a stupid question. if i want fruits and vegetables i go to the grocery store. but i'm guessing that for a lot of people, because everything is so expensive that that's maybe not an option for everyone. or as you were mentioning, some of the specific things they may be looking for, some things that are part of their ethic cuisine may not be that easy to find locally. is that right? >> yeah. part of the reason that diverse group of community members and urban gardeners wanted to pass agriculture incentive zones in san jose is we are finding families are struggling to afford high san jose rent and fresh fruits and vegetables for their families. being able to grow your own food in the valley, it is a perfect climate. we wanted to find that way to take advantage of the empty spaces and vacant lots in san
7:14 am
jose and put those to good use. >> you said because there is a green house going on on this piece of land, they get the process started. and then the seedlings get transferred to the families and they grow them at their own homes. >> exactly. valley verde is a program in san jose where local families can bring home seedlings to plant in their back yard. you can go to the yard when you want a fresh tomato. harvest it yourself. bring it inside and make dinner for your family. >> before you go, you have an event, as the grand opening next week. it is also an opportunity to let other property owners know about this program. tell me quickly about that. >> if land owners are interested, we'll have a workshop at 10:00 a.m. next thursday the 25th at the valley verde greenhouse to learn what it might entail. we'll have a grand opening event after that. >> thank you very much for join
