Victory Gardens San Diego is a program of

San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project

Educating, cultivating and empowering sustainable food communities in San Diego County since 2008.

A California 501(c)3 educational nonprofit — TIN 26-2131406

San Diego Roots formed in 2008 as a grassroots network of citizens, farmers, chefs, gardeners, teachers, and students working to encourage the growth and consumption of regional food. From farm to fork, we focus awareness and work toward a more ecologically sound, economically viable and socially just food system in San Diego.

By eating locally, not only do you get fresher, better-tasting food, you also help support family farms and encourage a vibrant local economy. We encourage you to become an informed participant in our local food system, and join with others to do the same. Food is best when shared.

We are passionate to bring attention to local food issues and educating the public about where their food comes from.

We live in one of the best growing climates in the world, and we’re learning and teaching ways to better take advantage of it for all who live here, now and for future generations.
