TOURS

Hours and Location

 

Public Farm Tour: Second Sunday of every month, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Enter at 441 Saxony Road, Encinitas.

We offer 90-minute public tours of our Farm on the second Sunday of the month. Join us to learn about our innovative practices and programs and visit our edible labyrinth, market-style production beds, artisanal hand dug gardens, chickens, compost operations, food forest, and vineyard.

To learn more and reserve your spot in an upcoming tour, visit our Events page. Open to all ages. Please wear close-toed shoes and bring a refillable water bottle and a sunhat!

We also accommodate private tours for groups of 10 or more (subject to availability). For more information, please email hello@coastalrootsfarm.org.

All Farm Tours operate on a pay-what-you-can model with a suggested donation of $18 per person. Your donation of any amount supports us in continuing to make our impact, including donating 70% of all of our harvest to food insecure communities in San Diego and providing scholarships for low income, Title I, and Title V schools to ensure all students in San Diego County have access to hands-on farm-based education.
