The mission of Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture and Education Project is to strengthen and support local food systems by educating youth and adults about food, nutrition, sustainable living and ecological farming; build relationships between farmers, consumers and educators; and contribute to food security in our Sacramento community.
We operate two certified organic farms - a one and a half acre market garden nestled among houses, apartments and a middle school in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento, and a 25 acre ranch along the American River in Rancho Cordova. Our produce is sold through a CSA program, a farm stand, urban produce stands, and to local restaurants and specialty markets.
Both farms host experiential learning field trips, and cooking, health, and nutrition classes for the students from neighboring schools. The farms also host community workshops, volunteer activities, and events. Since 2003 we have trained aspiring urban farmers and gardeners through our 8-month long apprenticeship program.
