The Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture

Arcadia cultivates vibrant local food systems that prioritize health, equity, and sustainability from the farm forward. 


Who We Are

Arcadia is a community of eaters, growers, and good food advocates who believe everyone should get the good stuff. So we grow food, and we grow farmers.


We cultivate healthy eaters and community and school gardens. We work to make sure everyone can get their hands on  delicious, affordable, local food. And we do it in a way that's good for wildlife, biodiversity, the soil, and the climate.
