Farm Discovery at Live Earth

County
Santa Cruz
Activities
Farm Discovery at Live Earth engages kids and families with seasonal, organic, and local food systems for their bodies, the environment and their communities.

Food, farming and nature exist in complex, interconnected socio-cultural, economic and ecological systems. Farm Discovery empowers kids and families to make these systems regenerative and healing for individuals, communities, and the natural world.

Farm Discovery’s vision is growing healthy relationships through food, farming and nature.

Our farm, Live Earth Farm (LEF), established in 1996, is a 150 acre diversified, organic, family farm overlooking the Pajaro Valley in the Santa Cruz area of California. LEF runs a year round CSA, growing over 50 different fruits and vegetables surrounded by a native landscape of redwoods and oak woodland. LEF’s produce is directly marketed through local farmer’s markets, restaurants, a thriving web store, and a weekly CSA program. Education has always been a part of Live Earth Farm since its beginning, but in 2007 a separate non-profit entity, Farm Discovery was formally established to compliment and expand the educational programs at Live Earth Farm. We now host more than 2000 children on the farm each year for engaging farm-based, hands-on learning opportunities in a variety of formats.

Products
- Farm Discovery offers educational programs that inspire youth and families to transform their relationship to food, farming and nature through 9 different farm-based education programs for all ages.
- We steward our working farm and its wild spaces as an environmentally and economically viable piece of the food system and a learning space.
- We collaborate with community partners to learn from each other and extend our collective impact in the community.

Matchbook Wine Company is a family-owned winery tucked away in Northern California's gently rolling Dunnigan Hills. Located just 30 minutes north of Sacramento and Davis, Matchbook is a local Yolo County destination for wine lovers looking to discover quality estate-grown varietals.

Our 2,160 square-foot tasting room includes an open-space meeting area, a private meeting room, a wine bar constructed with repurposed wood from a local barn, and a 400 square-foot patio overlooking Matchbook's estate vineyards and the coastal mountain range spanning the western horizon. Surrounded by over 1,200 acres of scenic vineyards, Matchbook Wine Company's tasting room is a fantastic setting for intimate meetings, ceremonies, and get-togethers.

Our rolling hills are planted with the usual varieties – chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, petite sirah – and some that are little bit of a surprise – tempranillo, graciano, tannat and verdejo.

Products
Matchbook Wine Company offers rotating wines monthly in its tasting room with a broader selection of wines available for purchase on its website and in select retailers. The wines available for purchase from Matchbook Wine Company thrive out in the warm Dunnigan Hills climate, as well as 100% extra virgin olive oil from the groves on our property.
