Located on the Pacific Coast a thirty-minute drive north of San Francisco, Slide Ranch is a nonprofit educational farm situated in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Since 1970, Slide Ranch has taught visitors about the impact our choices have on food, health, and the environment, through hands-on activities and independent exploration of our farm and coastal wild lands. Slide Ranch is a member of Marin Organic Farms.
Each year several Teachers-in-Residence (TIRs) join the ranch community for a 10.5 month internship in which they learn about organic gardening, animal husbandry, carpentry, nonprofit administration, sustainable living, and more. The TIRs in turn use food as a central theme to teach thousands of visitors each year that: "Every bite of food connects us to the soil, sun, water, and air, and to the people who work to feed us."
Slide Ranch teaches respect and responsibility for sustaining these connections.
Program participants learn to care for farm animals and gardens, explore miles of wildland trails, discover ocean tide pools, and sometimes camp overnight. The TIRs customize each teaching program to meet the learning needs of groups of all ages, ethnicities, and cultures, focusing particularly on elementary school-aged children. Approximately one-third of our programs support under-served populations.
