Pittsburg, CA


Company description

Healthy Hearts Institute’s (HHI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, mission is to empower individual and community transformation through Health and Wellness.

We believe that health is a human right, but for many who live in, or are part of a disadvantaged community/population, this right has been denied. In response to this inequality, HHI has created health and wellness programs that help to restore people’s health rights by addressing the economic, social, and environmental injustices that are at the root cause of this inequity. We do this by providing the education, tools and resources necessary for people to live healthy, socially connected, and environmentally sustainable lifestyles.

The purpose of our 1.5 acre farm is multi-fold; 1) We grow healthy food for the local community; 2) Provide farm training and workforce development to disadvantaged populations: justice impacted, low-income, at-risk youth, housing insecure etc.; 3) Teach people how to combat environmental injustice in the face of climate change; 4) Provide a pathway for people to become more active and engaged with nature; 5) Educate people on seasonal produce cycles, nutrition, and the food system’s impact on climate change.
