At Wild Willow Farm we educate, cultivate, and empower sustainable food communities in San Diego since 2010
WILD WILLOW AT A GLANCE
Wild Willow Farm is a non-profit educational farm managed by the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County. We are a nurturing space that encourages biocultural diversity, providing experiences to nurture self-empowerment and inspire people to connect to food, land, and each other.
We cater to a wide range of ages and skill levels, offering something for everyone. Bring your organization or school to the farm for a field trip or group activity, learn how to grow food in our farm school course, or gain a deeper understanding of health and wellness at one of our workshops or community events. Saturdays are open to the public for volunteering, exploring the farm and meeting our friendly staff.
