Agritourism brings the public to the farm, providing opportunities for education and appreciation of farming. It can also boost the bottom line of a farming operation. Join us for this field day to see some examples and learn about what's required to make it work. The workshop will be held at Bees N Blooms during peak lavender bloom, so come and enjoy the show and see an example of agritourism in action.
Tucked away against the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Live Earth Farm uses practices that are good for climate resilience, biodiversity and the bottom line on their 50 different direct-marketed organic crops. They’ve installed nest boxes and hedgerows to bring beneficial insects and birds closer to the crops, used water saving techniques and integrated carbon-storing soil and woody vegetation practices.
