Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

Farm and Garden Educator Resources that were shared during the "On the farm and in the garden educators" bus tour.

2011 Eco-Farm Bus Tour visited Cesar Chavez Middle School in Watsonville, De LaVeaga School in Santa Cruz, The Life Lab Garden Classroom on the UCSC Farm, and Carmel River School in Carmel. Read about the schools

2010 Eco-Farm  Bus Tour rolled straight into a stormy day of downpours and tornado warnings. After our first rainy stop at Carmel Middle School we continued on to mostly clear skies at Westlake Elementary, the Life Lab Garden Classroom and UCSC Farm, and ended at the Santa Cruz Green Careers High School.
During the tour we discussed many resources that are useful for on farm and garden-based education.

 

Here is a summary of some resources we shared and discussed during the day.

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.
