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.
