Alegría’s SoxxBoxx system optimizes the genetic potential of your favorite leafy greens, herbs and vegetables by employing rich “living soil” that contains all the essential minerals, beneficial microbes, humus plus superior oxygen and water holding capacity to deliver your plants all they need to flourish.
At Alegría Fresh, we provide urban farming tools that provide access to superior, nutrient-dense produce that is loaded with all the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals that your body needs to heal itself. We call our farm the “Green Farmacy” and we practice “beyond organic” food production. Employing regenerative urban farming principals, we focus on soil fertility, reduce waste by recycling all carbon, including composting and vermicomposting, and offer rainbow-colored food that is unsurpassed in quality because it is so fresh and full of light energy when you eat it.
Our simple SoxxBoxx growing system makes any commercial urban farmer or home gardener a pro. The basic 4’ x 8’ system includes:
1) 6 – 8” x 8’ polypropylene Soxx filled with our Alegría premium soil;

As all our remaining fertile land is being paved over, we can fill the niches with “neighborhood food forests”, and in most cases residents can have Alegría Farms on their own property. The “farmland of the future”, according to a quick Google maps survey, comprises over 40 square miles of land in LA and Orange County that can be repurposed at minimal cost, virtually eliminating food deserts while strengthening community resiliency (Food Security + Energy Independence). Add in the human factors such as the increase in social justice in marginalized communities, ie, increased health and wellbeing resulting from greater access to nutrient dense food in food deserts, lower auto-immune disease rates (diabetes, obesity and cancer), living wage job creation, as well as mitigating climate change (increase carbon sequestration and water retention from the greening up of blighted neighborhoods).
