Sunol Ag Park Education Programs

Sunol AgPark Field Trips (Grades 4-6)

These field trips offer the opportunity to experience a working organic farm, engage with farmers and explore the interaction of the farms and the surrounding riparian area. Field trips begin with an introductory farm tour followed by a lesson connecting students to the land and to people involved in agriculture and natural resource preservation. Students also participate in farm chores geared to the season and farm needs. Field trips generally run from 10 am to 1 pm (not including transportation time) though other times are available to meet teachers’ scheduling needs.

In-School Programs (Grades 4-6)

These programs complement the field trips by preparing students for the farm experience. AgPark educators go to the school with up to one hour of materials about the watershed, the role of farmers, and the connection of the farm to the riparian area adjacent to the farm.

Spring programs are offered in April and May, and fall programs are offered in September through early November.  During those periods, In-School programs are offered on Fridays, and Field Trips are offered Tuesday – Thursday.

Field trips, in-school programs and buses are FREE, underwritten by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Schools in low-income communities may apply for grants to help cover the cost of transportation, thereby allowing us to offer more free field trips. These grants are offered through Environmental Volunteers, and are granted on a first-come, first-served basis and are dependent on your % of FRMP. Apply early before funds run out!

We encourage schools and teachers interested in planning a field trip to the AgPark to review our list of requirements and recommendations before submitting a request form.
