youth & family empowerment
to regenerate health:



“without wildlife, without farmers, without family, without care. . .

its just food.”
~Luis Leonor, Jr. Staff member



Increase soil organic matter over time, provide economic stability & fairness for farmers & workers, & create resilient regional ecosystems & communities



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



“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.

    Details & Registration:

    Come experience the season through the eyes of a farmer. Collect fresh eggs, play with our Pygmy goats, meet our pregnant milking cow, Bella. We will enjoy a guided tour or our 100 acre organic family farm and farm-based education facilities. Our farm roads meander through orchards, oak woodlands, and redwood groves with views of the Pajaro Valley. See our solar panel array, our permaculture garden and our Discovery Garden & Fields. Learn about the importance of eating seasonally and how to prepare your pantry for the upcoming season.
    Each experience will include a tour and a class on how to make the most of in season crops. From canning & fermentation to salve making, classes will go over how to enjoy a season’s bounty. Take home a sample of the class’ product and enjoy light snacks while you learn! We look forward to seeing you on our organic family farm!
