About Coastal Roots Farm

Founded date: 2014

Company stage: Other

Coastal Roots Farm is a nonprofit community farm and education center where we nourish connections between people, food, and the land. Since our inception in 2014, Coastal Roots Farm has provided dignified access to fresh food for those who need it most. Inspired by ancient Jewish wisdom and Jewish agricultural practices, we raise organic and sustainably-grown crops and share the harvest with our community. Through workshops, agricultural festivals, and community events, we offer hands-on education and invite our neighbors to connect to the land and each other. Coastal Roots Farm is located in Encinitas, CA on approximately 15 acres of land. Our Farm consists of vegetable gardens, greenhouses, a food forest, animal pastures, compost, and a vineyard. Coastal Roots Farm was incubated by the Leichtag Foundation in 2014 and received 501(c)(3) public charity status in 2016. Mission: Coastal Roots Farm cultivates healthy, connected communities by integrating sustainable agriculture, food justice, and ancient Jewish wisdom. Vision: We envision a world in which every community comes together to grow healthy food, care for the earth, feed their neighbors, honor traditions and strengthen the connections they have with each other. Impact: Since inception, we have distributed approximately 80,000 pounds of fresh produce and donated approximately 60,000 pounds to those who lack access to healthy food. Our educational and community events reach an average of 3,500 unique visitors each year.
