About Golden Bridges School Farm
Golden Bridges School Farm is an educational urban farm located on unceded territory of the Ramaytush Ohlone people. We envision the land as a living organism, where all parts, including ourselves as stewards, are interconnected and interdependent, working together to contribute to a healthy, balanced, and whole integrated farm. We employ a mix of permaculture, biodynamic and organic methods to grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits. We have a basic outdoor kitchen, which includes a small cob oven. We make compost on-site with food scraps from our outdoor kitchen, chicken manure, and red wiggler worms. We support biodiversity through the planting of pollinator-friendly plants, bay area natives, and the growing of heirloom fruits and vegetables, which we seed in our 4x6 greenhouse with saved seeds. We have an animal program, which includes hens and rabbits. This year, our community is planting 50 fruit trees on the land. There are a variety of outdoor covered and uncovered classrooms on site, including two stump circles, a flagstone patio with moveable benches, an elevated wooden platform, and honeycomb structure with an even, stone floor and chalkboard. The farm is owned and operated by Golden Bridges School, a Waldorf-Inspired preK-8 school in San Francisco.
Currently, the Farm is utilized by Golden Bridges School for all of it's classes - Preschool through 8th Grade - throughout the school year. Golden Bridges School also operates camps during some school breaks and throughout the summer. There are long-term plans to offer:
Open Farm hours on some weekends for drop-in visitors
After-School programming for non-Golden Bridges School students
Weekend workshops with a variety of themes related to urban farming, for adults and families
Internship and apprenticeship opportunities
Connections and visits from local public schools
There are not currently plans to develop on the property.
