Thank you for supporting Farm Discovery.
2021 has brought an extended, deliberate process of getting “back to normal.” At Farm Discovery, we are always growing and evolving to meet the needs defined by our community, whether it be distance learning support or field trips for students back in school, small community u-pick events or large harvest and sheep shearing festivals – so normal is a relative term.
In this dynamic time, you have supported us to continue to respond in the best ways we know how. Together, we hosted over 400 families for farm walks, piloted a family camp out on the farm, hosted full summer camp and Leader in Training programs, got back to our fall field trips for schools eager to learn and play on the farm AND will deliver more than 75,000 pounds of fresh organic produce diverted from the waste stream to kitchens, tables and plates of our neighbors most in need.
Thanks to 5 generous donors we have $22,000 challenge gift for our 2021 Santa Cruz Gives campaign. Meeting this goal will ensure we can offer at least 40% scholarship spots for Summer Camp, Leader in Training and Field Trip programs, support this talented and passionate staff and continue to build our robust volunteer programs, that make a lot of this possible.

Produce delivery volunteer Trevor had this to say, “Farm Discovery and Live Earth are the heart that pumps the life blood of fresh, healthy food options into our community. At Holy Cross Food Pantry I see the faces and how thankful the struggling families, the mentally ill, homeless, sick, the elderly in need, are to receive fresh healthy veggies that you grow, harvest and supply us with.”
