Students will meet at Slide Ranch, an environmental education center with an agricultural focus. It is a Marin Organic, working farm, located on the West side of Highway 1 between Muir Beach and Stinson Beach. Class cost includes day use of facilities and the oceanside yurt. This is an opportunity for some immersion in the challenges and rewards of creating on site, capturing light in the morning. A great sensory experience...organic vegetables growing, goats, chickens, view of the Pacific Coast, and the rustic buildings at Slide Ranch.
