Coastal Roots Farm strives to offer an inclusive and welcoming space for all people. The following accommodations are available at all programs and events at Coastal Roots Farm. To pre-request an accommodation, please indicate your support need in your event registration form or email email@example.com for more information.
As an operational farm, Coastal Roots Farm has some uneven terrain and many changes in surfaces. Guests are advised to use caution when exploring Farm spaces.
Accessible parking is located at the property entrance, across from the Farm Stand and Security Checkpoint. As you enter the property, check in with a security member, and they can direct you to an accessible parking space.
For guests who require transportation support to move throughout Farm spaces during programs or events, a shuttle cart is available to support navigating uneven terrain.
Microphones with earpieces to amplify speaker volume are available upon request for all tours, events, and workshops.
The Farm offers access to Sensory Kits which include noise-cancelling headphones, sunglasses, fidgets, and essential oil. Sensory Kits are available for check out at the Visitor Entrance kiosk or by request from a Coastal Roots Farm educator.
Nutrition Philosophy, Food Allergies, and Kashrut Policy
At Coastal Roots Farm, nutrition education is a key component of our programs. We embed food preparation, consumption, and conversation in every program we offer. Our priority focus for nutrition education is to offer positive, shame-free exposure to diverse foods. Although we strive to provide alternative options for common allergens, we are not an allergen-free space and cannot guarantee foods will be free from cross-contamination. Please speak with an education team member about any dietary restrictions or food allergies so that we can offer a safe alternative.
Coastal Roots Farm is part of the wider Leichtag Commons community where we welcome individuals and groups of all backgrounds for various programs and events including friends, neighbors, and organizations who observe Kashrut (Jewish dietary law). To accommodate our pluralistic community, any catered food offered at events must always be vegetarian or pescatarian (no poultry, red meat, pork, or shellfish permitted).
Service dogs are allowed on the Farm only if they have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person's disability. Emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals are not considered service animals under the ADA. Pets are not allowed on the Farm.
We are grateful to our partners at Illumina for sponsoring our accessibility improvements.
