What We Do

Mission Statement

Central Coast Grown creates strong connections among farmers, the public and the land to nourish our community, support local agriculture, and make local food products accessible for all.


Central Coast Grown envisions a community where local food and farming enterprises are sustained, our food culture thrives, and the coexistence of food production and education fosters a resilient local food system.


Sustainability: Moving toward economically viable, environmentally sound, and socially responsible food systems.

Innovation: Testing assumptions, remembering proven practices, and exploring new ideas.

Collaboration: Building community coalitions


Central Coast Grown (CCG) is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in San Luis Obispo, CA. We work to build local, sustainable and fair food systems by connecting the members of our community to the abundance of local food and farming in the County. We strive to bridge the gap between what people eat and where it comes from and in doing so, to strengthen the food culture and relationship people have with their food.
