Coastal Roots Farm, a nonprofit Jewish community farm and education center in Encinitas, is set to host a film screening and panel discussion of its new film “With Heart and Soil, Nourishing Community from the Ground Up.” The 12-minute documentary-style film will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 4-5 p.m., and will showcase and discuss the regenerative farming techniques and overall philosophy of the farm.

At Coastal Roots Farm, farmers prioritize techniques that build and maintain soil and sequester carbon, not just to grow great food, but also to contribute toward a solution for the larger problem of climate change.

“We take to heart that people rely on us not just for food, but to be fed by opportunities to connect and learn,” said Kesha Spoor, director of Philanthropy, Program Strategy, and Communications. “We are proud to be a part of what is a much larger global movement for environmental sustainability. This is our humble contribution to a larger food system in need of much repair.”
