Educate Youth

City Farm has partnered with SLC Unified School District to provide at-risk students hands-on twice-weekly classes in planting, harvesting and cooking crops. The FARM BOX program, started in October 2019, adds an entrepenurial component in which students package and market the produce they grow to local customers.

City Farm offers a Therapeutic Horticulture class for PREPARE (Pre-vocation Recreation Education Productive Adult Readiness Experience) to differently-abled students.

City Farm hosts Our Global Family Educational Garden, where elementary school children and their families learn about worldwide food cultures and food cultivation methods.


In October 2018 City Farm SLO initiated On the Farm, a program of field trips that extend the benefits of our educational projects for special needs students to a larger constituency. It allows groups from kindergarten through middle school to deepen what they learn about biology, ecology, and nutrition in the classroom by meeting farmers and working the land themselves.

Bring the farm to your classroom, or to your students at home! 15-Minute video lessons are paired with lesson plans, handouts, slides, and supplemental materials - all linked to CA Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

You've got a deal and an excited partner program!

Thank you for an informative visit to the farm. 'Best day ever!' according to my kids. I am hoping we can plan another trip to the farm, if you're willing.

- Kelly Hughes

Grade 1 Teacher, C.L. Smith Elementary School

Cool spot with great things happening. All sorts of educational activities about farming are taking place and Pacific Beach High School is a beneficiary of this community asset. Who needs calculus when you can have cauliflower?  One of the students expressed a new found love of science because of the City Farm.
