Elkus Ranch Environmental Education is located on 125 acres of coastal grassland just south of Half Moon Bay and has been providing environmental education programs to Bay Area youth since 1975. Educational programs were created specifically to connect the public to the work of the University of California and involve much more than a farm experience.
Master Gardeners oversee a demonstration garden that is part of the Fair Oaks Adult Activity Center in Redwood City, a facility where adults can engage in wellness and social activities. The large garden features raised vegetable beds and containers, and a composting area.
The Master Gardeners plant and maintain a demonstration garden behind the Veterans Memorial Senior Center (VMSC) building. This allows us to offer hands-on demonstrations in conjunction with a speaker series, share two garden beds with special needs groups, and donate the edible produce grown at the garden to the Senior Center Chef for meals for the seniors.
