Each year over 2,000 local children and youth learn about farming, nutrition, and environmental sustainability and connect with nature on our farm. All four seasons offer opportunities to gain knowledge and skills about our food system, the farm and natural ecosystems.
In the spring, students participate in farm immersion programs, staying overnight on the farm for a few days to get their hands dirty, preparing compost, sowing seeds, and preparing farm-fresh meals with spring crops.
In the summer, kids of all ages – from the youngest participants in our Wee Ones program, to our school-age summer camp participants, to the Pajaro Valley teens Leaders in Training and those doing their Food What?! internship on Live Earth Farm – tend and harvest an abundance of delicious summer produce.
In the autumn, students visit the farm for our applemania field trips and our weekly homeschool program to participate in the harvest, sample fresh fall fruits and veggies, and help us save seeds for the next season.
In the winter, young visitors enjoy caring for our livestock – our chickens, dairy goats, and cow – while helping us prepare the land for another bountiful year.
Our 150-acre organic farm is a rich resource for learning about agriculture, science, nutrition, and ecology. With your support, we bring local students to the farm to learn throughout the seasons.
Please join us in our work to empower youth to make regenerative choices for their health, our community, and the environment through farm-based education. Make your tax-deductible contribution today at www.liveearthfarm.net/four-seasons, so we can harvest a healthier tomorrow for our youth and our planet.
Thank you! We wish you all the best this – and every – season.
