Alegría Regenerative Health Center

Opened in April 2019, Alegría's new Regenerative Health Center at the Farm + Food Lab in The Great Park in Irvine is developing training programs to become local installers and/or to operate Alegría SoxxBoxx Farms in their communities. Our mission is to make the direct connection between Soil Health = Human Health = Environmental Health. Using our SoxxBoxx Gro system, we are focused on creating living-wage jobs in regenerative urban agriculture by training vets and youth in inner city schools to green-up blighted neighborhoods, and create local entrepreneurs that provide access to fresh, nutrient dense food within “food deserts”.

Our interactive teaching farm features Alegría’s zero waste, high-performance regenerative organic food production tools and urban microfarm principles, which feature our Regenerative SoxxBoxx Gro system & "Living Farm Stands".

Programs:

• Learn about our 1/2-acre regenerative organic microfarm operation (Table-on-the-Farm);

• Premium Organic Soil classes and Soxx filling programs;

• Alegría’s Green Farmacy showcases the importance of living soil to produce nutrient dense healing foods plus functions as a primary “climate mitigation” tool that sequesters carbon and maintains a healthy environment;

• Entrepreneurial Education Programs for marginalized youth, vets and people to create new living-wage jobs in high-performance urban agriculture;

• Understand regenerative organic Zero Waste Food Production Systems;

• Educate participants on our scalable “above organic” food production techniques:

• High-performance Urban Farm Design & Construction;
