Earthworks Farm is a 4.9-acre work-training and educational urban farm located in the beautiful Whittier Narrows Recreational Area, next to South El Monte, and east of downtown Los Angeles. Earthworks Farm facilitates multiple education programs benefitting the surrounding communities.
These programs include workshops in organic farming, farm-to-school education, Harvest Tours, CSA, Farm-to-Table and volunteer opportunities. Earthworks Farm uses organic farming practices and grows a diverse array of crops.
Earthworks Farm is a San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps (SGVCC) program, and provides to local, disadvantaged youth through the Healthy Harvesters program hands-on work skills and job training in organic farming. Furthermore, Earthworks Farm strives to reach out to local schools and community places to teach on-site organic farming practices.
The mission of Earthworks Farm is to grow organic produce, promote local and sustainable agriculture, teach organic farming to community members and support a lifestyle of healthy eating and active living.
Earthworks Farm encourages healthy relationships between people, their food supply, and the land from which it grows. Hence, ongoing educational programs and volunteer opportunities are provided to fellow gardeners to learn more about basic organic farming practices.
