Protecting farmland has always been part of the mission at Peninsula Open Space Trust, and POST’s partnership with Pie Ranch, an educational farm in Pescadero, is a perfect example of that work. Pie Ranch’s mission is to cultivate a healthy and just food system from seed to table through food education, farmer training, and regional partnerships.
Join us to hear the story of Pie Ranch and what’s new for the nonprofit from Leonard Diggs, Director of Operations. Leonard will describe Pie Ranch’s goals and programs, particularly their new farm incubator working to advance farm business ownership specifically for Indigenous people, people-of-color, and others who have been historically marginalized from equity-building pathways in agriculture. We’ll also discuss Pie Ranch’s current and future work, as well as the road ahead in recovering from the aftermath of the lightning fires that significantly affected Pie Ranch and the surrounding area.
