For almost two years the Co-owners of Herb En Routes micro-farm in Ocean Beach have been growing sustainable and local produce on .25 acres on a previously vacant lot on Voltaire St. They were selling organically grown produce to local restaurants, such as Tender Greens, To The Point Cafe, Farmhouse Cafe, and the Pearl Hotel and Restaurant. Additionally, they had a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program that provided veggies for 25 local families.

Although they have enjoyed every minute of it, the co-owners have decided this endeavor to be too time consuming. So, they have decided to turn the farm into a community garden to allow them to work towards other careers but still continue to serve the community. Their mission of providing local produce and opportunities for teaching sustainable agriculture lives on!

Herb En Routes would like to get the word out to Point Loma and Ocean Beach that plots are available. Please share this post with your friends.
