City Farm SLO Tour -- Kayla Rutland & Shane Lovell
Monday, October 24, 2022  10:00 am - 12:00 noon

City Farm San Luis Obispo

$10 for LLCC members, $20 for non-members

Join us when we visit City Farm SLO, a 19-acre hidden agricultural gem in the heart of San Luis Obispo. During the program, well learn about the operations, history, and future of this unique Urban Farm and have the opportunity to participate in some farm activities.

City Farm SLO represents a unique collaboration among municipal government, a non-profit organization, business enterprises, educational institutions, and public and private funding agencies committed to the revival of community engagement in sustainable agriculture.

Their mission is to manage San Luis Obispos 19-acre Calle Joaquin Ag Reserve to achieve the goals specified in the Citys Master Plan:

   Enable sustainable crop production by small farmers  

   Provide area youth with on-site educational programs  

   Engage the community in the life of an urban farm

Located along Highway 101 near the southbound LOVR exit, the property is owned by the City of San Luis Obispo and has been managed by the City Farm SLO non-profit since 2013.

We recommend that folks wear comfortable walking shoes that can get a little dirty.  Also, bring water, sun protection and a bag to load up with a few vegetables. There is a portable toilet on site. Our guides will be Executive Director Kayla Rutland and Farm Manager Shane Lovell See http://cityfarmslo.org for more information.

Kayla Rutland has been involved as a volunteer then Vice President of the Board of City Farm SLO since moving to San Luis Obispo County in 2017. In 2021 she became Executive Director, bringing experience from the Health Promotion Division of the County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department and previous roles in nonprofit organizations. Kaylas personal mission is to advance community health and climate resiliency by helping all people connect with food and where it comes from. She is grateful for the opportunity to work towards this mission every day. In addition to this work, Kayla enjoys trail running, mountain biking, and backpacking in our incredible Central Coast. Kayla earned a Bachelors Degree in Nutritional Science from the University of Connecticut with a minor in Sustainable Crop Production.

Shane Lovell is passionate about designing ways for natural ecosystems and our modern ways of life to thrive together. He earned a bachelors degree of Industrial Design at The Art Institute of California then worked as a furniture designer for several years. While this was an engaging and creative career path, he longed to take his design interests into the natural world. With growing interests in gardening, natural ecology, and regenerative agriculture, he decided to pivot his career into farming. He discovered City Farm in 2019, and after a brief period of volunteering, he joined the team as Site Manager. In 2021 he became Farm Manager, overseeing the educational gardens and general farm maintenance. His focus has been to design a system that encourages people, ecology, and agriculture to all flourish simultaneously.
Outside his work on the farm, he enjoys being in nature. Whether its hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, or just relaxing under the trees, he is rejuvenated by observing the natural world.
