The innovative community garden, SMARTS Farm, fills a valuable city block in San Diego’s East Village. The green space is on Broadway (between 13th and 14th Street), right in the heart of a thriving urban community. SMARTS Farm is the pet project of a local nonprofit called Humane Smarts. The organization cites youth education as its primary focus but this oasis has a lot to offer the wave of creative adult professionals that are currently flooding into the East Village.

Community plots. Who says you can’t build a meal from farm to plate whilst living a life of urban modernity? If you live at IDEA1, consider leasing a raised garden box and plant your own veggies. The farm is just a few blocks from home. A little dirt under the fingernails is a small price to pay for the pride of growing your own dinner.

The charming backdrop of a creative urban garden space is suitable for any occasion.
