At North River Farms, we envision a better, brighter future.

We want to build a connected farm community that values its residents, its land, and its food. And, we want to make a positive impact on the health and happiness of Oceanside and the surrounding communities.

But, we can’t go this alone. We need your help to make our dream become reality.

Are you interested in supporting the sustainable farm community of Oceanside’s future? Join Team North River! Learn how you can get involved with our project and show your support, below.

Get Social

One of the easiest ways you can show your support for North River Farms is by getting social with us!

That’s right, you can find North River Farms on both Facebook and Instagram. Make sure you follow both of our pages so you can be a part of our farm family. Posting positive reviews and messages on our channels are both great ways you can advocate for our project.  

Sharing your support on social can help persuade other community members who may be on the fence about our project. We want to hear from you! Tell us why the North River Farms project matters to you. Whether you share a status, leave a comment, or simply like our posts, we’re excited to get in touch with everyone on Team North River.

It’s also a great week to connect with other like-minded individuals who share your passion for a progressive, sustainable community in the Oceanside area.

Write a Letter

If you’re looking to help us make a positive impact, you can also write a letter to the City Council of Oceanside. What does it need to contain? Don’t worry. You can’t go wrong. Simply write a general letter expressing support for the North River Farms project.

Alternatively, you can always focus on a more specific issue.

Sharing your support for North River Farms with the city council members will help when it comes time for them to decide how the city will vote on this idea.

Dear Honorable Mayor and City Councilmembers,

As a resident of Oceanside, I would like to offer my support for the North River Farms community.  I have watched the community progress through the planning phases and I am intrigued by the innovative and sustainable design of the agrihood community. I think the use of an integrated farm community in this location respects the region’s agricultural history. I am supportive of the City of Oceanside looking at responsible and creative ways to address the housing shortage and I think this community would make a great place to live. 

Thank you for the opportunity to submit my support.

Sincerely,  

[YOUR NAME]

Oceanside Resident
