"The New Roots Community Farm provides growing spaces for 85 families in the heart of the City Heights neighborhood. Many of the participants were farmers in the home country and this is their first opportunity to reconnect with the land in the United States, as well as double their family’s food security and nutrition access. The farm is open to the public.
The New Roots Farm operates the Downtown El Cajon Farmers' Market and assists in the management of the City Heights Farmers' Market.
