Small-Scale Food Production
Growing Solutions is enhancing food security within Santa Barbara county by increasing sustainable food production and education through our existing small-scale grower's programs. Working in conjunction with Santa Barbara City College’s Environmental Horticulture department, Future Solutions provides the tangible means and tools to learn how to grow affordable nutritious food for personal consumption and local markets.
