The Ranch

With the support of the City of Cotati, Sandy Loam manages the beloved Veronda-Falletti Ranch as an urban demonstration farm and arts & cultural center with its community partner, Farmster. Sandy Loam provides child- and youth- focused programming with environmental and community sustainability on our minds, complementing Farmster’s programs for adults.

Sandy Loam is named after the Ranch’s fertile soil composition, and provides a unique and meaningful learning environment for our community.

Our intimate ranch house hosts a beautiful and newly renovated classroom and workspaces. Our farm and garden areas facilitate a diverse range of guided and independent experiences, including caring for the Ranch’s land and farm animals. By emphasizing beauty and safety, we honor each visitor and student’s right to be in a deserving space and encourage them to respect our environment for all the gifts it provides us.
