The Tres Estrellas “Soil-to-Table Certification Program” is a 4-week, residential, experiential learning program that provides training in small-scale ecological farming, farm-to-table lifestyle and cooking 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, vegetable, herb and flower 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 cooking through a dynamic combination of curriculum presentations, group discussions, hands-on field work, hands-on 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, all curricular activities, as well as two Saturdays at Rancho La Puerta Wellness Resort and Spa to enjoy fitness and well-being classes, presentations from various speakers, pool time and farm fresh meals in the dining room.
No prior experience necessary.
