San Luis Obispo County Foundation For Agriculture Awareness, INC.

Current Outreach Projects
Constructed in 1998, the Demonstration Farm showcases agricultural commodities grown on the Central Coast. Open to the community, this mini-farm was developed through a cooperative effort between the SLO County Board of Supervisors, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, and the SLO County Farm Bureau.
The farm has made an excellent teaching tool in a variety of ways. It consists of 12 raised planters, each five feet wide by 20 feet long. Permanent crops include avocado, both table and wine grapes, and citrus. Some of the seasonal crops that have already been rotated through include: nursery crops (flowers), sugar peas, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, several varieties of lettuce, strawberries, bell peppers, herbs, and pole beans.
There’s always something new to see at the Demonstration Farm, so come on by the Farm Bureau office at 651 Tank Farm Road in San Luis Obispo and see what’s growing!
