City Farm SLO has become established as an agricultural, educational and community facility largely with the support of donations, grants and the dedication of our volunteers. As our programs expand, we need to be able to hire at least one full-time staff member to coordinate and develop them to get fullest benefits from this land’s priceless civic asset. 2019 initiates a local fund raising campaign to make this happen. Please contribute some of your talents and/or resources to making the campaign a success.

WITH A $50 DONATION:
Your donation of $50 feeds our small herd of sheep for 2 weeks. Clover, Peggy, and Ash are a young trio of Navajo Churro Sheep that enrich both the educational programming and soil health on the farm. Students are engaged in all of the tasks of animal husbandry, and they will learn to process the sheep's wool for weaving and knitting.
WITH A $100 DONATION:
Your donation of $100 sponsors one classroom field trip to the farm. Students from Kindergarten through Middle School visit the farm to deepen their understanding of biology, ecology, and nutrition concepts taught in the classroom by meeting the farmers and working the land themselves. Farm lessons are linked to their classroom curriculum, and feature hands-on, interactive learning.
WITH A $500 DONATION:
Your donation of $500 sponsors a season of seed purchases. This gift grows into thousands of pounds of wholesome produce, grown by students and community members, to nourish students and community members. City Farm SLO produce is distributed to school meal programs, community members via the Farm Box Program, and the Food Bank Coalition of SLO.
