This week long celebration strives to bring together neighbors of all backgrounds, including immigrants. Participating organizations affirm that building strong connections and inclusive places helps to achieve collective prosperity.
Most of Filoli’s historic staff immigrated or migrated to California, creating a new home built from different cultures, languages, and beliefs. Food has been used by immigrant communities to connect to home and preserve memories. Learn about some staff food traditions in the Kitchen this week.
Filoli is renovating our Vegetable Garden. We’re excited for it to be a place to celebrate the Bay Area’s diverse food cultures. Food has been used by immigrant communities to connect to home and preserve memories. Visit the Garden this week for an interactive display to share your food memories and what you would like to see growing.
