"Located in City Farm SLO, Our Global Family Farm is a prime example of regenerative agriculture and urban farming in action. One of their main causes is honoring Indigenous cultures which can be seen in their Food Forest permaculture farm where they grow food crops from all over the world year-round.


Although available to the public every Sunday, we recommend attending one of their monthly multicultural potlucks to learn more about the farm and connect with others about horticultural traditions and culture over food made and grown with love."

(Note: This quote is from a recent blog in Redfin real estate company promoting things to do in SLO. Veiw more below.)

2024 Volunteer Opportunities: Sundays 9am to 1pm

June 25 workday 003.JPG

One of the main reasons Our Global Family Farm was founded in 2014 was to create a place for families to come visit and volunteer at a permaculture farm in the greater San Luis Obispo area. We've dedicated this 1/4 acre piece of public farmland to education about how to grow food in an ecological way. We hope you’ll help us continue this work by volunteering on every Sunday 9am to 1pm. Then on Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm we deliver our surplus produce to the meal giveaway at Mitchell Park, SLO through the Food Not Bombs program.

One of our goals is to ensure that people gain knowledge about the wisdom of plants and how to utilize crops from around the globe. Let's learn from plants about how beneficial they are for humans.
