UCSC Farm & Garden 50th Anniversary

Life Lab is a 38 year old non-profit who has partnered with the UCSC Farm for most of our existence. We are thrilled to be part of the UCSC Farm & Garden's 50th Anniversary. We will be sharing a workshop along a line up of many other great offerings. We will be also offering childcare through a One Day Camp for 6 years and older at our Wildlands and Watering Cans daycamp site.

The First Fifty Celebration’s three days of events combine an engaging lineup of speakers, workshops, tours, and music, with great local food and time for mingling with old-timers and newcomers to the sustainable agriculture community. Join us for part or all of this 50th anniversary event! Great pricing for an incredible line up of workshops and food.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
