Long lasting intergenerational relationships

For nearly 25 years, Oaks & Acorns has been creating safe, healthy and fun learning environments where young and old alike give and receive life lessons in understanding, respect, and compassion. In addition, we have events and programming to help bring our mission & vision to life by facilitating community involvement.

Here at Oaks & Acorns, we are motivated by a single goal; to build strong relationships between the generations. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our interactions on the greater world. As a result, we developed activities to engage different generations and demographics. We foster intergenerational exchanges.  And, have lots of fun together doing that! Oaks & Acorn events encourage and build new bonds.

Because we understand the potential of these relationships, we provide safe spaces for them to happen. Consequently, nurturing them and expanding our shared community to grow a forest. Whether planting gardens, cleaning up beaches & canyons, sharing meals & learning table manners, or engaging in meaningful conversation and shared experiences, Oaks & Acorns strives to be a safe (both emotionally & physically) intergenerational community for all participants.

Current Planting:

We are developing our Growing a Mindful Grove program with the San Diego Unified School District. For more information, check out the GMG page!

 Stone Soup

On November 12th, 2017, Oaks & Acorns hosted Stone Soup, a fundraising event held at the First Unitarian Church of San Diego in Hillcrest. As a result, of this wonderful community event, we were chosen as the recipient of the church’s December 2017 generosity offering. Many folks, of various ages,  shared a lovely afternoon with poetry, storytelling, and songs. Two local Souplantation restaurants provided a delicious meal for all to enjoy. Furthermore, we would like to extend a warm thank you to all who joined us in this celebration of community engagement and growth.
