We ended off our incredible garden year at Adelante Charter with a field trip to Fairview Farms in Goleta. Fairview’s wonderful staff stumped us all straight away with the question – What is the most important thing on the farm? The soil! As we meandered through orchards, chicken hideaways, bee territories, and goat stalls, we could feel underfoot that this was true. The carrot taste test proved it! The soil, the food, the environment is alive and well at the farm.
