the Little Cunha Farm

GIVING TUESDAY 2022

Today is #GivingTuesday, and you can help contribute to make the Little Cunha Farm grow!

We are looking to expand with: six more garden beds, a drip irrigation system, pathways for students move around with ease, and a shade structure. We are so grateful for your donation to our little farm. You can use http://venmo.com/thelittlecunhafarm or you can write a check to Cunha Intermediate School, memo: Agricultural Science donation.

Agricultural Science

Throughout the class students are investigating local farmers and the role they play in producing sustainable foods, all the while combating climate change. Students draw relationships between human populations, food production, soil health, and how we can use the soil to sequester carbon from our atmosphere. Students are learning the fundamentals of soil science and how to analyze soil health properties. Students create a project or prototype to communicate a solution answering the question: how can you implement sustainable agricultural practices to improve soil quality and mitigate the impacts of climate change in your local environment? 

Meet Our Flock!

On our little farm, we have six chickens who we raised as day old chicks when we picked them up from Half Moon Bay Feed and Fuel.
