Autism Tree's Food, Farming & Nutrition Program believes that every child should have easy access to local, fresh and healthy food.
Our mission is to promote healthy living and eating by changing the way kids and young adults on the spectrum and their families relate to their food, to the earth and to the world around them. Through this program students are able to get their hands in the dirt and learn new things while experiencing life on our farm!
Created by Autism Tree Board Member Pablo Fernandez, Owner of Secret Table, this program creates opportunities for our kids and families to learn about food, farming and nutrition in their community.
We have partnered with Wild Willow Farm in South Bay every Spring, hosting workshops that provide an opportunity for our children and families to help out on the farm, play in the children's garden, pet therapy goats and chickens, and create a healthy lunch with produce they pick fresh from on the farm.
On-going events such as cooking classes for our teens with autism, farm visits for our families, an educational YouTube video series and much more also make up this program. Since 2017, this program has served 438 children and over 250 families to date.
