Misión 19

  Located in the heart of Tijuana, Misión 19 is a global food destination. Since its inception in 2011, executive chef and owner Javier Plascencia's tenacity to rebuild the community of Tijuana has inspired a cultural and culinary renaissance that continues to evolve and grow. Tijuana boasts an abundance of food trucks and small, street side businesses, but Javier envisions more sit down, quality service restaurants in the future to draw in and sustain a wider range of visitors to the already bustling city center. Hopeful, Javier expressed that "the more people who visit Tijuana and then return to San Diego super happy and eager to share their experiences," the better.

Urban Plantations

Over six years ago, Karen Contreras, dissatisfied by her high paying corporate job, boldly decided to pursue her love for organic gardening and began following her passion instead of her paycheck. In 2008, she founded Urban Plantations, the first company in San Diego to promote and install gardens both for beauty and growing food. Since its inception, Urban Plantations has grown from a small company installing home gardens to corporate landscapes and everything in between. With over 35 years experience in the field, Karen takes time to educate and train her staff to ensure that they are knowledgeable and well versed in everything from sowing seeds and caring for trees to pest management and soil biology.   {gallery}stories/a-closer-look/urbanplantation{/gallery}   Urban Plantations has gained national and global attention with the ris

Brian's Farmers Markets

  Entrepreneur and philanthropist Brian Beevers is making big waves in San Diego's local food scene. Raised on a walnut farm in California's central valley, Brian understood the lot of the farmer from an early age and was no stranger to hard work. This rural background, coupled with this experience working for L'Arche ("The Ark"), a worldwide organization that creates residential communities for people with intellectual disabilities, helped fuel his passion to ofserve those less fortunate.   After moving back to San Diego after college, Brian took a job managing the City Heights Farmers' Market for the San Diego County Farm Bureau. From his first day at the market, Brian knew that he had found an ideal job that tied together his rural background and his goals for strengthening San Diego's farming community.   {gallery}stories/a-closer-look/briansfarmersmarkets{/gallery}   Bria
