ESCAPE to Slide Ranch 2016

ESCAPE to Slide Ranch

Goat milking, a trip through the chicken pen, baking from the organic garden, and lots more…

We have come to love our annual trip to Slide Ranch.  The students are exposed to so many new experiences, that it’s a bit overwhelming for us to try to document the day.  
Our group of 35 kids was broken into four groups, each led by one of the talented Slide Ranch staff.  They take the time to learn kids’ names, and really interact personally with them the entire time we’re there.  We can’t say enough about their program, and their generosity to us.  You can find more about them at

We ended the program sharing a feast of all the things we made: bread, butter, vegetable stir fry, and rhubarb crisp, all on nasturtium leaf plates.  So tasty, and we made it all ourselves!

The last part of a full day was a walk down to the beach for a little tide-pooling, some selfies, and an incredible sunset.
