  About the
River School

The River School Farm is a venue for year-round farming, special events, and educational opportunities that demonstrate a holistic approach to sustainable living, bioregional design, and creative expression.

We grow fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs, and we raise poultry. Our special events include everything from weddings and festivals, to birthday parties and bar-b-ques, to an eco-friendly art camp for kids.

The River School Farm hosts a variety of classes and workshops that are open to the public. These include improv dance, kundalini yoga, dance/movement class for kids, drumming, fire spinning, a variety of organic gardening workshops, feldenkreis, and more!

Tucked away along the banks of the beautiful Truckee River you will find Reno's biggest little secret; the River School Farm meadow, two stages, unique metal sculptures, and a stone step amphitheater, all of which help create a unique and geographically specific venue for high desert weddings, shows, and birthday parties.       

We specialize in growing greens and root crops year around in hoop houses, low tunnels and row covers. The River School also grows warm season crops during the summer months. Our micro eco deep organic sites include the River School Farm, Hug High School Gardens, Patagonia ESA ( Employee Supported Agriculture) and other small sites. We sell through our ESA, CSA, and to the Great Basin Food Coop and restaurants. We also collaborate with other market gardeners in our region to sell their produce. The River School works in a cooperative manner with other farmers, gardeners and permaculturists. One of our goals is to advocate, teach, and demonstrate how to grow 20% of our food in the Truckee Meadows by 2020.
