Founded in 1970, Slide Ranch is a non-profit teaching farm located at a historic coastal dairy perched above the ocean in the Marin Headlands within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). Organic gardens, goats, sheep, chickens and ducks, along with numerous coastal trails, tidepools and pocket beaches, provide an ideal outdoor venue for teaching about healthy foods, healthy living and environmental awareness. Annually, over 10,000 Bay Area children, youth and families participate in Slide Ranch Programs which bring learning to life with experiential education activities on a working farm, using organic gardens and animals to teach an appreciation of where food comes from, and to inspire a lifestyle that includes the sustainable use of natural resources. The organization also works to ensure that its programs are accessible to all, and raises funds that make it possible for more than 70% of the children and youth it serves to receive scholarship assistance.

Mission Statement

The mission of Slide Ranch is to connect the Bay Area with farm-based environmental education that focuses on the principles of sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship. By cooking, gardening, caring for animals and exploring country and coast, we teach students and families to see the connection between their own choices, a healthy food system and a healthy, resilient environment.

Description

Each year, Slide Ranch provides field trips and overnight camp outs to nearly one hundred schools and community organizations from throughout the Bay Area. Students explore our farm and wild lands and learn about the interdependence of people and the environment, with a focus on food and farming. Slide Ranch is committed to engaging a diverse community in our programs; we keep program fees as low as possible while providing scholarships to half of all participants.
