The Tres Estrellas “Soil-to-Table Certification Program” is a 6-week residential program that provides training in small-scale ecological farming, farm-to-table operations and self-reliance. Participants live, learn and work at the scenic 6-acre Tres Estrellas Organic Farm and Garden located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, one hour south of San Diego, CA. The permaculture influenced farm elegantly incorporates organic, biointensive fruit and vegetable production, agroforestry, agrobiodiversity conservation and animal husbandry to create an idyllic example of ecological agriculture. The training covers the basics of small- scale, ecological farming and farm-to-table operations through a dynamic combination of curriculum presentations, group discussions, hands-on field work, cooking and food preservation, field trips, and individual projects. Participants will receive a "Soil-To-Table Certification Program" certificate upon completion.
The cost for the program is $1,500 USD. The program includes shared housing, meals, transportation to and from San Diego International Airport, daily curriculum and guided field work as well as two Saturdays at Rancho La Puerta Resort and Spa.
Dates for winter program: January 23- March 6 2021.
