.California State Grange Center for Sustainable Agriculture
Thank you for taking interest in the brand new Grange Farm School. The Center was founded in 2013 with generous support from the California State Grange. Now an organization linked to Granges throughout the country, the Grange Farm School aims to "educate the whole farmer" in sustainable practices. We have an ongoing workshop series for local farmers and gardeners, a "practicum student" program for those seeking learning opportunities in hands-on farm work, and a nine-month residential program based on classwork and field experience.
We look forward to the collaborations made possible by creating this space. Please navigate our pages and photos to learn more about the exciting Training Programs, Workshops, and ways to Participate in the development of this new project.
Our sincere thanks go to Ridgewood Ranch and the Golden Rule Association for hosting us on their beautiful 5,000 acre property in Willits, CA.
We are also extremely grateful for the support of the California State Grange and Little Lake Grange in funding the start up costs of this projects.
The Grange Farm School operates under the umbrella organization North Coast Opportunities, a 45 year old agency dedicated to strengthening and supporting community projects.
