The COLLEGE AREA COMMUNITY GARDEN (CACG) is a privately run, non-profit [IRS 501(c)3], community-based organic garden/urban farm with an attractive network of raised bed garden plots and related improved areas. We are on privately owned land directly next door to San Diego State University and foster a greater sense of community between local residents and university students, faculty, administration and affiliates. The garden is set up to be sustained in part by charging very affordable yearly fees to lease raised planting beds. We welcome gardeners from any financial ability level and having any skill level. Come join us so you too can grow and harvest healthy food for your personal consumption.
In partnership with local subject matter experts, the CACG sponsors occasional educational workshops and classes on organic farming practices, planet-friendly agricultural methods and water-wise collection and irrigation methods. These low cost (or free) workshops and classes promote healthy soils, water, urban gardening, food crops and ecosystems. We coordinate our efforts with other local and regional community gardens as well as local, state and national organizations and government agencies.
