Focusing on the culture of farming, organic production, direct marketing and the academics of growing food, Wayside Farm School provides working, farm-based instruction to a unique student population with diverse ethnicities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds. Wayside Farm School is a partnership between LA Sheriff’s Department and Five Keys Schools and Programs and strives to transform individuals, families, and communities.
