A farm for the neighborhood

Northeast couple launches California Street Farm

Jim Bovino and his wife Jillia Pessenda Bovino first met six years ago performing in a play staged in the California Arts Building in Northeast. They played husband and wife in Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus.”

Now you’ll find them digging in the dirt across the street from the building. They’ve started a one-acre farm appropriately named the California Street Farm and are planning to grow a wide variety of veggies they will sell to area restaurants and through a CSA.
