As part of Affordable Housing Month 2021, SV@Home and the City of Morgan Hill are hosting the event, “A Model for Agricultural Workforce Housing in South County.” South County farms and agriculture workers feed Santa Clara County and housing is a critical and a basic need. This population often gets overlooked, and their contribution to our communities is essential! We want to continue to build affordable, permanent housing for our agricultural workforce. Join this panel of stakeholders to discuss the importance of working towards meeting this need and a model for building agriculture workforce housing in South County.
