Prior to the dinner, join us at 3 pm for a reception and tour of the gardens, fields, greenhouses and orchards of the 30-acre CASFS/UCSC Farm, including the recently opened Hay Barn field.

Now in its 46th year, the Apprenticeship program is the premiere organic farmer and gardener training program in the country, with over 1,400 graduates now working across the U.S. and internationally as organic growers, educators, community garden organizers, researchers, and policymakers. The Apprenticeship is based at the UCSC Farm and Alan Chadwick Garden at UC Santa Cruz.
