About Us


Merging Agriculture, Kitchens, and Employment

MAKE Projects is an employment social enterprise. We operate an urban farm, restaurant, and events/catering company to provide a paid, real-world work experience for low-income refugee and immigrant women and youth. Our mission is to provide our trainees with job readiness skills to help them achieve their dreams.

Our vision at MAKE Projects is to see San Diegans cross social, racial, economic, and geographic lines as we gather over a common love of food, flavors, and culture. We believe in the power of food to bring diverse populations together, unite a community, and educate each other about our history and differences, as well as our commonalities.
