The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program has three new docent programs, providing opportunities for local adults to get involved with this successful farm-based education organization. Monterrey Bay area residents can choose to become a Program Docent, an Event Docent, or a Garden Docent, receiving training for any or all positions. LEFDP empowers 1500 local kids a year to make healthy choices for themselves, their communities and the environment, now local adults have an opportunity to participate as well.
In the spring of 2013 The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program will train Docents to facilitate learning on the farm. Program Docents will help with farm field trips, running hands-on stations for students of all ages. Event Docents will provide support leading up to and during the program’s four main community celebrations a year, as well as monthly community farm days throughout the spring, summer and fall. Garden Docents will help maintain the Discovery Garden and Fields.
These new docent programs will help LEFDP achieve our mission of helping local under served youth build confidence in learning to be active caretakers of themselves, their community and their environment. In addition, the programs serve to further our mission in providing an arena for adults to participate in our programs. The trainings provided for the positions will include teach outdoor education techniques, sustainable agriculture theory and hands on organic farming skills.
