Log Cabin Ranch

This summer, through a partnership with the San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department, we began installing our 7th school garden. Our new site is located on the grounds of the Log Cabin Ranch in La Honda; this residential treatment and rehabilitation facility for adjudicated young men is located on over 250 acres about 45 miles south of the City. This summer the young men visited farms in the area, read articles, installed their irrigation system, completed their garden design, built 4 large garden beds, and planted their fall crops. For the upcoming school year our garden educators will continue to work with the youth, staff, and SFUSD teachers to complete the garden installation, build a composting area, and connect the garden to their classroom curriculum. We are also hoping to be able to incorporate their fresh garden vegetables and herbs into the Log Cabin kitchen once the harvest begins.
