About Common Salt

Common Salt is a community initiative capturing business resiliency and adaptation in San Diego. Our members know that small businesses may be common, however, they are the defining building blocks of our communities. Just as salt is an integral part of everyone’s kitchen, the importance of small businesses is rarely thought of until they are removed from our daily routines. Made up of writers, photographers, researchers and videographers, Common Salt takes pride in capturing and sharing small businesses stories. To make an impact in our neighborhoods, these stories are shared to inspire business innovation and cultivate ideas that work. We aim to ignite resiliency in small businesses during and after community disasters.
