The mission of Slide Ranch is to connect the Bay Area with farm-based
environmental education that focuses on the principles of sustainable
agriculture and environmental stewardship. By cooking, gardening, caring
for animals and exploring country and coast, we teach students and
families to see the connection between their own choices, a healthy food
system and a healthy, resilient environment.
Slide Ranch offers rewarding volunteer opportunities for individuals and
groups from throughout the Bay Area. While working under the supervision
of trained staff on our teaching farm and 134 acres of wild lands,
volunteers contribute to Slide Ranch in a variety of ways, including
working in our organic garden (weeding, pruning, prepping garden beds,
planting and pest control,) composting, restoring native plants and
removing invasive plants, and maintaining trails and beach access.
Slide Ranch welcomes the participation of all volunteers, aged 14 and
older. For students fulfilling community service hours, corporate and
community group team building or individuals who want to put a green thumb
to good use, Slide Ranch provides challenging, engaging and meaningful
experiences. Volunteers may schedule a one-time visit or volunteer on a
regular basis as part of an ongoing project.
