Slide Ranch Harvest Celebration October 14

Celebrate the season of harvest and bounty in the style of an old time country fair! Create and name a scarecrow, learn to spin wool or just relax in our beautiful garden. You and your family can have fun milking our goats, visiting our lambs, chickens, ducks, and turkeys. Families will enjoy interactive events designed to engage children of all ages including bread and cheese making, fall crafts, coastal hikes and carding and spinning wool from our sheep. Lunch featuring locally grown foods will be offered at the Slide Ranch cafˇ. Slide Ranch is a teaching farm, on the forefront of a growing movement to inspire children and their families about the importance of a healthy lifestyle that includes eating fresh locally grown foods and getting plenty of exercise.
"We believe that getting outside to a spectacular setting away from the city traffic and seeing where food comes from, tasting fresh produce and learning how to make bread and cheese can transform a child's relationship to the natural world, and the harvest season is a wonderful time to visit our coastal farm," said Ann Cole, Executive Director at Slide Ranch.

Call (415)381-6155 for reservations or visit www.slideranch.org for more information. *Pack a water bottle, layered clothing and shoes that can get dirty!

Additional Information:
Slide Ranch Founded in 1970, Slide Ranch is a non-profit environmental education center. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean just north of San Francisco within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) between Muir Beach and Stinson Beach, the facility sits on a 134-acre historic dairy farm that is over 100 years old. Organic gardens, goats, sheep, and chickens, along with the coastal wild lands and tide-pools, provide an ideal outdoor classroom for teaching environmental awareness. Slide Ranch teaches children and families about the sources of food that nourish us and an environmental awareness of our planet's limited resources
