You can grow your own food. We can help.

Seeds@City Urban Farm

Seeds@City Urban Farm is a one-acre working farm formed in June 2008 through a partnership between San Diego City College and San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project. The farm is the first of its kind at an institution of higher education in San Diego County. It is located in the heart of downtown San Diego, and also serves as the outdoor classroom for the Sustainable Urban Agriculture program at the college. We train budding urban farmers through hands-on experiences, while growing nutritious food for our community, encouraging self-reliance and supporting our local economy. Our goal is to train the next generation of urban farmers in sustainable agriculture to build a more food-secure community, city and region.

 

Our Sustainable Urban Agriculture program is an academic program that builds on the success of Seeds@City Urban Farm and is a model program for sustainable agriculture academic programs in higher education. Since its inception the student demand has consistently been beyond our capacity. We offer an Associate degree in Sustainable Urban Agriculture as well as certificate programs in Urban Farming, Urban Gardening, Organic Gardening for the Culinary Arts, Introductory Ecological Landscaping, and Advanced Ecological Landscaping.

 

Seeds@City Urban Farm is a non-profit organization under the umbrella of the San Diego City College Foundation. We survive because of grants and donations and do not receive financial support from the college.
