ABOUT US

WebreadyIMG_9714.jpg

Co-Harvest Foundation is a 501c3 non-for profit organization working to help end food-insecurity in San Diego. We are made up of volunteers, members, activists and a small dedicated team that installs, maintains & harvests fresh produce from our 35+ microfarms in San Diego county.

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who aren't afraid to challenge community norms. Our mission has been inspired by trends in food insecurity and dietary disease within San Diego neighborhoods. We will not stand by as our global environment, regional economies, and local communities are devastated by our current food system. San Diego Co-Harvest has emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support low-income communities without access to healthy food. Established in 2019, we are an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.

Our growing network of volunteers and members have grown over 10k lbs of food, and as a result are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the nutritional input into food-insecure communities.

 These people from all walks of life are more efficiently using their space in a diverse network of micro-farms spanning 10 of San Diego's communities. These individuals and families and doing their part in trying to make our city more food secure and environmentally friendly.

The management of Co-Harvest Foundation consists of Director Avery Cramer, leaders at Bayside Community Center, and input from our employees/membership. This business was founded as a social enterprise that incorporates a cooperative element within its membership. This membership cooperation and input is so important to our success because in order to create a societal shift towards more local agriculture, we must influence community norms about where food should come from. Our founder understands it will take input from all sectors to transform the food system and complete our mission.
