Tomato U-PICK & Farm Stand, Ticketed Event.

Upick (strawberries) and Farm Stand volunteers will manage collection of contact information, release of liability forms and photography consent, help set up, manage parking, check tickets, remain on site throughout the duration of the event and provide supplemental field experiences.

The intention is to give families safe, affordable access to fresh, organic produce, a special outdoor space to interact with where food comes from, nature and each other, cultivating physical, mental and emotional health during these challenging times.

This event is rain or shine. Make sure to dress accordingly - layer, hats, sunblock. All ticket sales benefit on-farm educational programs for the youth of the Pajaro Valley.

Due to COVID and general parking concerns we need to limit the number of people on the farm at one time, so there will be three time slots of one and a half hours each to choose from on Saturday and Sunday - at 10am, 12pm and 2pm.

All ticket proceeds go to benefit Farm Discovery, the Live Earth farm non-profit food education program.

The Farm Stand will be open both days and well-stocked for all extra produce needs.

We will have three Event slots, each one of 1.5 hours. The event is from 10 am- 3:30 pm ON June 19-20. The slots FOR VOLUNTEERS ARE : 9:30-12:30, 11:30-2:30 or 12:45-3:45.
