Experience the farm as a living classroom!

The HEAL Project offers educational programming at The San Mateo County School Farm in Half Moon Bay. Our goal is for every student to come away with a greater understanding of where their food comes from and why it matters.

All of our field trip program options provide age-appropriate activities and lessons focused on science, the environment and health. We offer 4 different options based on season and grade level: Setting Roots, Fall Harvest Trip, Spring Explorers, and The Full Farm Experience.

Our Farm Educators work with teachers and organization leaders to complement and reinforce your educational goals. Our curriculum is based on Next Generation Science Standards, is hands on and experiential. The farm is a unique living classroom for students to get their hands in the soil, grow, and harvest.

Farm Field Trip Information

Your educational field trip is by far one of the best programs I have ever taken a class to. This was a very special learning experience for the students and has inspired me to renew my efforts to dedicate more time to the outdoor classroom.”
