San Diego Food Not Lawns

About Us

San Diego Food Not Lawns is a grassroots group based in San Diego, California (USA) and focused on "cultivating an edible future" and working together to offer information, facilitate communication, and otherwise act and effect local change regarding a variety of food and land related issues. These include food security; sustainable agriculture; GE's (genetically engineered) and commercial food production; environmental and social justice; farm workers and border issues; land access; water; reducing our ecological footprint; feeding the hungry; reclaiming space; and certainly, creating local food systems.
