its just food.”

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Protection of the natural environment through protection, conservation and regeneration: water, land, soil, wildlife, pollinators, biodversity

COMMUNITY

FAMILY, NEIGHBORHOOD, FOODSHED

“Everything having to do with food—its capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption—represents a cultural act.” ~Massimo Montanari

Our home, Live Earth Farm, is a 150 acre patchwork of working farm, riparian corridor, oak and redwood forest in the Pajaro Valley of Santa Cruz County, California.
