Since 2013, City Farm SLO has partnered with San Luis Coastal Unified School District's PREPARE Program to offer Therapeutic Horticulture programming.
Students enrolled in Therapeutic Horticulture
This program currently serves Middle Schoolers and young adults with disabilities.
Students in our programs have diverse needs, and much of our farm is currently inaccessible individuals with disabilities. A Garden For All is a fully accessible garden and our first step as part of a larger effort to increase universal accessibility farm-wide.
Farm Box Program:
Beginning in 2019, the “Farm Box” program was added to the Farm Class curriculum. Students participated in a weekly business class where they learned to market and sell their produce to the community. Farm box proceeds directly support future programming.
The Farm Box Program pairs agricultural skill building with business/marketing training, all while advancing local food access.
In light of COVID-19, this program is paused. We hope to resume in Fall 2021.
