Coastal Roots Farm

Coastal Roots Farm integrates sustainable agriculture and food justice through its non-profit Jewish community farm and education center in Encinitas, California. The farm operates by traditional Jewish values that concern how we treat our neighbors, share belongings, observe the passing of time, celebrate and improve, consume ethically, practice sustainability, care for plants and animals, understand the natural world and create a vibrant, thriving community. 

From a 17-acre piece of land, the farm distributes about 40,000 pounds of food to 20,000 low-income seniors, active duty military and veterans, families, migrants and Holocaust survivors each year through a “pay what you can” farm stand and direct donations to local hunger relief organizations. The farm also offers hands-on education and experience through school and group visits, farm tours, volunteer opportunities, Jewish agriculture festivals and other community events. 

A $25,000 contribution from the Simply Organic Giving Fund is being used to support the ongoing operation of the farm’s produce donation program — the growing, harvesting and distribution of organic produce to people facing food insecurity in a manner that promotes dignity and self-sufficiency.
