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.

If you really pay attention, you’ll notice that there is an insurrection taking place. Sounds dramatic, right? Well, it is. Tribes of folks both young and old are taking up shovels against those who would stand in the way of them living an awake, healthy, purposeful, and independent life.
