Live Earth Farm Discovery Program

The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program (LEFDP) is a new, nonprofit education organization located at Live Earth Farm.

Live Earth Farm is a beautiful 100 acre organic family farm and CSA in Watsonville, CA. They offer a variety of educational and community outreach programs including: Farm Tours, Infant and Toddler Programs, a Montessori Middle School Program in Partnership with Wavecrest of Santa Cruz Montessori, and a Farm Education Internship.

Live Earth Farm Discovery Program’s mission is to provide hands-on educational programs focused on local, organic, and sustainable food systems.  The program’s intent is to reach out to all segments of the community with an emphasis on low-income, diverse and underserved populations.

The LEFDP “classroom,” Live Earth Farm, is a well established community-based, small, organic farm which exemplifies farm to fork environmental stewardship.  LEFDP offers year round farm-based educational programs on topics including but not limited to:

  • Organic and nature based sustainable farming;
  • Nutrition;
  • Local food networks;
  • Humane livestock management;
  • Environmental education;
  • Permaculture design.

This family-run organic farm is an ideal venue for teaching about where our food really comes from, and for learning about the vital interconnectedness between human communities and the Earth, about our place in fragile ecological systems.

  1. Hello, my name is Jack Thranow and I’ve been up to the farm on several occasions to see my friend Elise and to tour the farm. I intend to become an organic farmer. I see you have a Young Farmers Program. Would you have any opportunity for a very young farmer to learn and work on the farm? I have some availability this spring and summer and would appreciate the chance to help. Thank you for your time . I await your reply. Sincerely, Jack
