Vegetables Fruits, Herbs.
The flagship organic farm and teaching garden, launched spring 2009, is a place to grow good soil, food, and farmers. Patterned after successful teaching farms at universities in Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, San Diego, and Fresno, the farm is part of an initiative developed from a countywide commitment to teach Marin residents about the valuable role of agriculture in Marin County, and to promote local food systems. It is the only teaching farm in the county. The project is the result of a long feasibility study conducted in collaboration with College of Marin, the Conservation Corps North Bay, UC Cooperative Extension, Marin Master Gardeners, Marin Community Foundation, and the Marin County Board of Supervisors. Over 29 local farmers and private and public contributors provide support to the farm. If you are not invovled with IVC’s program you can still reep the benefits of their educational outreach through their farmstand open year around!
