Our vocational training program includes a Garden Club, teaching gardening skills and work behaviors. The Garden Club meets in our organic garden on the San Francisco peninsula.

Gardening provides opportunities to build expertise while accomplishing challenging, practical, and goal-oriented tasks. There's nothing more satisfying than eating a salad from vegetables you've grown from seed!

Fostering independence in our residential farm community

Our Special Needs Lifelong Farm Community will provide coordinated services to assist adults with special needs to live in their community as independently as possible.
The Vision
Residents will live in individually owned apartments, on or near our organic farm. The residence will be close to community services, and will encourage community interaction.
Our Social Club matches volunteer buddies with our participants, providing them with friendly companions, while hellping them develop the social skills needed to form friendships and develop a cohesive community.

Buddies meet weekly, and hold a gorup activity monthly. Participants are actively involved in planning group activities, such as cooking, movies, bowling, art projects, and museum outings.
