You know it's summer on the farm when the flower field is in full bloom and the tomatoes are starting to ripen. What a sweet time of year it is! Summer comes but once a year on the coast, we hope you take some time to get out and explore. If you're looking for a kid friendly activity to do to fill these long summer days, consider stopping by the San Mateo County School Farm for Farm Fridays, open volunteer hours are from 9am - 4pm. Read on to learn about THP’s participation in Farm + Fish + Flowers, new ways to support our programing and what’s happening on the farm this month!

Thank you to the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce for inviting us to participate in this years Farm + Fish + Flowers tour! This event offers the public the opportunity to enjoy guided tours of select Coastside farms, nurseries, and historic sites. This past weekend THP staff lead a group of community members around the San Mateo County School Farm, showing off our outdoor classroom spaces and seasonal crops. It's always rewarding to introduce new people to the work we do!
Have you been considering giving to the HEAL project but not sure how to help? We made it really easy by creating an Amazon Wish List! All the supplies on our wish list will be immediately put to use on our in-school and on-farm programs.
Summer camp update
Only 2 more weeks of farm summer camp left before we transition back to our school year field trip programming. Campers have been having a blast with our co-camp leaders Naomi and Kali building solar ovens, playing Iron Chef with farm fresh ingredients, making nature inspired crafts, baking bread with farm grown wheat and having a fairy tea party! Lots of summertime fun in the sun and fog at the SMC farm this month! Check out some of the photos below:
