Farm to Table Teaching Center

Taking center stage a new Farm-to-Table teaching facility is dressed with a thriving habitat roof.

Situated within the Golden Gate National Park the non-profit environmental education farm took extraordinary steps to create a built ecology that replicated the native Pacific coastal landscape.

Native plant seeds where gathered only from the local watershed then grown-out for a year. Ultimately the plants were returned to their parents home (albeit a rooftop) where they live with sweeping views of the Pacific.
