Lopez Island Farm Education (LIFE) encourages K-12 students to learn appreciation for nature, nutrition, community, land stewardship and the environment. Students engage in experiential learning to gain knowledge in geography, history, literature, math, social studies, and music, using food as a unifying principle. The students gain experiential learning through the various gardens, orchards, and hoop houses on campus and use the food they have grown to prepare meals for the school cafeteria through culinary arts classes.
