San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project

San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project aims to encourage the growth and consumption of regional food.  The nonprofit has a 6-acre farm, Wild Willow Farm, where it runs its School for Sustainable Farming and hosts a range of workshops and events focused on training the next generation of sustainable farmers.  Through its urban agriculture program, Victory Gardens, it also helps community members grow their own food through collaborative gardens, educational programs, and community outreach.  Since Victory Garden’s inception in 2009, the program has helped establish roughly 100 new gardens.
