Coastal Roots Farm

Coastal Roots Farm

Coastal Roots Farm is a nonprofit Jewish community farm and education center where we practice organic farming, share our harvest with those who lack access, offer barrier-free environmental education, and foster spaces for people of all backgrounds to come together to engage in ways that catalyze a healthier, more vibrant and connected community and a more sustainable future for the region. The Farm is located in Encinitas, CA on land we recognize as traditional to the Kumeyaay and Luiseño peoples.

The Farm’s mission to “Nourish Community” is rooted in ancient Jewish social, environmental, and food justice values that connect people to their community, their food, and the land. Ancient practices and values such letting the land rest and sharing one’s harvest with those in need inform how the Farm grows and shares food, cares for its land, and connects with neighbors. The Farm’s “cradle-to-career” educational programs include Nature Play, School and Group Visits, Farm Camp, Counselors-in-Training, After School on the Farm, Volunteering, Internships, and more.
