We know you have a lot on your agenda, but we hope you save a little time in your day to create some shared memories playing, learning or cooking at Miramar Farms.
from the garden
Farmer Liz Band has been with Miramar Farms for 3 years and grows the beautiful flowers and delicious food we enjoy at the farm. Liz will be hosting three different 60–90 minute workshops in 2018:
Honey Bee Workshop and Honey Tasting: Learn about the life of honeybees and enjoy a taste our vintage 2017 honey, along with honey from around the region sourced from varying habitats.
Farm Field Tour and Taste: Join Liz on a walk through the farm fields and kitchen garden. Along the way, enjoy a taste of what’s growing—from berries to apples to herbs and seasonal specialties. (Seasonal and weather dependent; April through November.)
Garden Art: Liz will custom design a workshop for your team to create a living piece of art from flowers, herbs or other natural resources found on the farm. This workshop is not only about creating an item of beauty to take back to your office or home, but about spending some quiet time creating and exploring together.
When you get people in the outdoors, the armor comes off . . . and you get to have these very real and down to earth conversations.
from the kitchen
Chef Robin McKnight and Baker Leslie Nastri have been creating beautiful and delicious food at Miramar Farms since 2014. Join Robin and Leslie for a food experience that will leave you laughing, grateful and delighted. In 2018, they’ll be hosting 45–60 minute workshops on:
Pizza Making on the Garden Grill: Make lunch together in the garden as you learn to make pizza with our Chef’s special homemade dough (Groups of 15 or less; weather dependent)
Salsa Making and Mexican Fiesta: The challenge is on to produce the best-tasting salsa from ingredients hand-selected by Chef Robin to accompany your lunchtime Mexican fiesta.
The Great Cake Competition: We’ll provide the cakes and all the fresh toppings from the garden and pantry; you provide the creative genius to create signature cakes to enjoy together for afternoon snack.
Please thank everyone for every great and delicious moment!
leadership adventureswith Drew McAdams
Drew McAdams has been the champion of play at Miramar Farms since our inception. When he’s not at Miramar Farms, Drew is a lecturer in play and recreation at San Francisco State.
As Drew will tell you, there is nothing like a little playful competition to build teamwork and bring out the best (and sometime worst) in our communication skills. Drew will get your whole group engaged as you work in teams to complete a series of physical challenges designed to encourage problem-solving, teamwork and effective communications. This is a powerful learning tool for teams and will have you reflect back on your observations long after you leave the farm. Drew’s Leadership Adventures workshop can be aligned with key themes on your agenda and typically takes 60–90 minutes.
