Farm Lab is evidence that public/private partnerships have the power to change what is possible by either entity alone. We are fortunate to have two on-site partners and a district partner consistently supporting our programming opportunities and community benefit.
The Ecology Center is our on-site farming partner. With their support and collaboration, the barren north side of our property evolved into a regenerative market garden, community meeting space, and the home of our new post harvest barn.
They currently host a farm share pick up at Farm Lab for our community members. Lucky us!
The YMCA hosts after school care in the DREAMS campus classrooms. In exchange for the use of our learning spaces, they bus ALL EUSD students to their DREAMS learning experiences at Farm Lab. This partnership is critical for program sustainability. We are so grateful for this mutually beneficial relationship!
BCK, our district's environmental education consultants, support our vermicomposting work and have partnered with us on waste diversion initiatives and grant funded student engagement opportunities. Looking forward to many future collaborations with this amazing organization!
