Why give to San Diego Roots?
We wake up every day with one goal in mind: to make a better, healthier, more sustainable and better-tasting world for everyone in our area. Your financial support makes this possible.
We work to educate our youth, create sustainability, preserve traditional farming methods and to discover and teach innovative farming techniques that work for San Diego's unique environment.
Your support helps us buy the many things a growing farm needs: trees, irrigation supplies, tools, educational supplies, and much more.
