FREE OPEN HOUSE for new families- September 2nd, 10am.

Once a month (October – May) Farm Discovery at Live Earth hosts a group of curious homeschoolers and their equally curious parents.

Most often we begin with a visit to the chickens, where scrambling to hold hens makes for an amusing romp. After eggs have been collected and tasty morsels distributed, the group moves on to one of many possible activities. One day we might gingerly pluck copious quantities of snails from citrus trees, get a lesson in tree grafting, or plant seedlings who will make their start in the greenhouse. A drizzly outing could include a hike around the farm to observe the changes brought by winter, followed by a visit to our cow “Bella”.

No visit for our group would be complete without some time shared with Live Earth Farm’s beloved goat clan. Whether they are birthing, nursing or simply frolicking, our children love to observe the goat’s delightful antics. Each month, you are sure to leave dirtier, happier, and more informed about where our food comes from and how it is grown.

If you are a homeschooling family and would be interested in joining our Home School program, please contact Peter at LEFDPEducation@gmail.com or (831) 728-2032.

We have dogs on the farm, whose purpose is to protect the farm from other animals. For the safety of the children who visit, we ask that you leave your animals at home. There is rarely adequate shade for you to leave your animal in the car while on site.
*If you need your service dog to accompany you to our site, please contact us in advance and have your service dog clearly marked. We will do our best to prepare for your animal’s visit and accommodate your needs for a service animal.
