The San Diego Peace Garden, located in City Heights, brings people of all backgrounds together by growing food in the San Diego area for the local community.
The mission of the garden is to teach people how to grow fresh and healthy food in a sustainable way. The garden is positioned on a property with 4 other non-profits which all strive for environmental sustainability. They property also holds a state-of-the-art straw-bale structure with passive heating and cooling, a large capacity for rainwater-harvesting and an edible orchard and garden.
All of this is made possible by forward-thinking volunteers who strive to teach sustainable gardening while growing an abundance of food which is largely donated to those who need and cannot afford it.
