Description: Costanoa Commons began with friendships between families whose disabled children range in age from 17-30. Knowing how important friendships are, we envision our adult children benefiting from living in the community, together with nondisabled people, sharing everyday life.

Our vision is to create an urban farm that will offer a meaningful place for people with and without developmental disabilities from the surrounding community to work, volunteer and socialize. Our community farm will offer farming skills training, employment, volunteer work, and recreation on a roughly four-acre organic farm, where high-quality food will be grown year-round. The farm will include aquaponics, the farming of plants and fish in a symbiotic system so that wheelchair users also can farm. We envision Costanoa Commons Farm as a sustainable social enterprise, where farm products are sold to local chefs and restaurants, at our farm stand, and through our CSA and contributed to local food banks.
Mission: To create a place where adults with disabilities can be integrated into the wider community, have job opportunities, and enjoy a full life.
