Direct experience is an ideal teacher. We create hands-on experiences for youth ages 5-18 to include a summer camp and project based learning through the academic year; STEAM certified. Parents play a key role as co-teachers and "comparers/os".
We cultivate crops in a way that honors the people who grow our food and conserves the soil that sustains us; it reflects who we are.
Miguel our farmer, receives a just wage, and we maximize soil health through zero pesticide and chemical use, composting, crop rotation and water conservation.
