Live Earth Farms
Live Earth Farm believes the key to growing nutritious (and tasty!) fruits and vegetables is creating and nurturing healthy soil. As stewards of the land, they farm organically and are certified organic by Organic Certifiers.
Established as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm in 1995, Live Earth Farm believes the key to growing nutritious (and tasty!) fruits and vegetables is creating and nurturing healthy soil. To do this they mimic natural soil-building processes using techniques such as composting, crop rotation, cover crops and mulching, adding organic soil amendments, and following careful tillage practices. These techniques allow them to grow and harvest food without depleting but instead nourishing the soil and its natural life cycle. As stewards of the land, they farm organically and are certified organic by Organic Certifiers.
Live Earth's overall farming philosophy includes growing crops as close and harmonious with nature as possible. They thrive on building diversity to enhance the native habitat and organic ecosystem on the farm. They work with organizations like Wild Farm Alliance on establishing wildlife corridors, and ensure native plantings to improve water quality, reduce soil erosion, and create beneficial insect habitat. A recent case study by California Climate & Agriculture Network determined “You would be hard-pressed to find a better model of biodiversity and climate resilience than Live Earth Farm.”
To encourage and help build food awareness and community connection with the Farm, its land and fields provide a place for the activities of our non-profit food-education organization, Farm Discovery, and act as a classroom for other local Youth Groups like Food What?! and Teen Kitchen Project.
Whether receiving a Farm Share or going to a Farmers Market, participating in Community Supported Agriculture is the best way to ensure a farm like ours continues to thrive and provide a sustainable place for natural organic diversity.
