Rodgers Ranch

315 Cortsen Rd. · Pleasant Hill, CA

What we're about

Rodgers Ranch was first founded as a farm in 1867, and is now on the National Register of Historic places. Originally a 149 acre farm, it was reduced in size over the years until just two acres remained, and the house was restored by the Historical Society. We re-started farming in 2012, and have since taught hundreds of people in various classes, including culinary, permaculture, biodynamics, composting, bees, and many other topics.

Location = 315 Cortsen Road in Pleasant Hill, CA.

We meet every Saturday as a group. Official hours are 10am to 12pm, but we almost always stay longer.

We also meet on Sunday, and often during the week as well.

If you can't come on Saturday, check with us.

Members are there 7 days a week at various times.

Not everyone comes every week. No problem. Come when you can.

Objectives are:

Learn by doing. This is a hands-on experience.

Learn what is possible to grow in this area.

Offer classes on how to grow healthy, organic edibles, flowers and natives.

Incorporate biointensive, biodynamic and permaculture principles for sustainable land stewardship.

Have something of interest for all age groups.
