All 5,400 students in the Encinitas Union School District visit Farm Lab’s DREAMS Campus and rotate through hands-on, Next Generation Science experiences, sometimes visiting for several consecutive days. Educational visits are designed to impart knowledge and information to students and teachers – instilling the values of authentic learning, inspiring healthy lifestyles, empowering engaged citizens, and stewards of a healthy planet. Farm Lab is also the first certified-organic, district-owned farm in the country growing food for its school lunch program.
Farm Lab activities will include garden bed building, small construction projects, tree planting, general weeding and cleaning, sign making, farm chores, and ongoing site beautification.
