Itinerary

Day 1

Check in at the Outdoor Adventures office meet your small group of farmers. Get to know your group and campus as we camp out at USD for our first night. We will review clothing and equipment and prepare for our farming adventures.

Days 2 – 4

After an enjoyable breakfast we will depart for a local farm owned by USD alums. Each day on the farm will provide new experiences for learning. Did you know that only 1% of agricultural land in California is suitable for growing avocados? In addition to avocados, we will get to know the chickens, sheep, goats, and farmers that care for the vegetables, fruits and berries grown on site. We will also get a look inside the economics of sustainable, organic farming.

Day 5

We will depart the farm today and enjoy a visit to the Safari Park before returning to USD. We will be back in on campus by 6 p.m.
