Most people in the South Bay get frustrated when planning an event because many venues are too small or too large that’s why we offer one location with multiple size meeting spaces so that you can successfully host your event and gather your community.
Over the past 5 years, we’ve helped gather communities through catering, education, and made it possible for 50 startups to propel. Sarah Lopez, wife, mom of five and dual business owner has poured into the South Bay community by cultivating business and ministry growth.
Sarah Lopez is excited for this season in her life and expectant of what is ahead! As a wife, mother of five, woman of faith and dual business owner, Sarah has a heart for community, ministry and local entrepreneurs. She was born and raised in Northern California by Mexican-American parents. Sarah has always been passionate for things of the Lord and being a resource to others. She pursued a career in Social Work, in childrens services at the young age of 19. She later graduated from California State University of Sacramento at 21 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
In 2003, Sarah moved to San Diego to pursue her graduate studies. She graduated in 2003 with a Master’s degree in Social Work Administration and a concentration in Aging & Health. During that college season is when Sarah met her husband, Daniel Lopez. Daniel is a Tijuana native and loves to seek God through the Holy Word. Daniel and Sarah had a quick and beautiful romance and were married in September of 2003. Shortly after, the two newlyweds began their family, purchased a new home in Chula Vista and then together established their first family business, One Time Plumbing in 2007.
The Lopez family grew rapidly as Sarah became the mother to five amazing children within the first 7 years of their marriage. Working as a stay at home mom and co-business owner, Sarah responsibly learned how to become a business manager, a visionary, and an engaged wife and mother. It was in 2014 when Sarah began to think about other business opportunities which she saw were missing in her community and among her fellow mompreneurs and families. Sarah began learning about and connecting with locals in the Nutrition industry. Sarah became incredibly active in her physical health, eating healthy and connecting with other local Moms.
With much support and determination, Sarah created a nutrition brand a commissary kitchen, locally known as Freshly Prepped. As the brand has grown, Sarah has helped hundreds of locals loose weight, increase their energy and achieve their health goals through her meal prep offerings. Additionally, Sarah has assisted over 30 culinary start ups by providing a space where local chefs & bakers can create their food and sell to the public.
Additionally, Sarah has cultivated the brand to success where they have been invited to be the exclusive food operators at Otay Mesa based business park, The Campus at San Diego business park where all campus employees can find healthy and tasty breakfast and lunch options. Now that Sarah has become a leader in her industry and among her peers, Sarah, with the distinct prompting of God has reconstructed the space next door to her Bonita based Freshly Prepped kitchen and created Harvest Collective!
Harvest Collective is a multi-functional event venue. The venue is complete with brand new restrooms, a coffee/beverage bar and access to catering services from the commercial Freshly Prepped kitchen just next door. It is a warm and welcoming space for local entrepreneurs to host a workshop, training, networking event or community co-work.
It is also appealing for families to host private milestone celebrations and ideal for small congregations of faith to gather for ministry. Harvest Collective has been a labor of love in which Sarah & her husband have been committed to seeing through and are so edited to now share it with you and yours!
