Moonwater Farm is a land-based learning hub investing in the regeneration of our health, community wealth and Earth. We provide educational programs, host events, and collaborate with partners who foster social equity.


We invite you to come visit! Teachers or families - we offer workshops on a wide range of subject matter that creates hands-on opportunities, engaging learners of any age. We do farm tours focused on practical food growing, making and preserving food, as well as livestock care and maintenance. Use our contact page to reach out and plan your field trip.


We offer FARM CAMP each summer so youth can experience urban agriculture in a hands-on setting. The week culminates in an exploration of some of LA’s best nature parks. We want kids to explore the natural world around them, question where their food comes from, and consider what they put in their bodies. Working with animals is a unique learning experience leads to a new confidence and new friends. 

Kathleen Blakistone



Kathleen launched the farm with partner Richard in order to address food justice issues in Los Angeles. With a loose business plan designed around aquaponics, the farm has taken on a vibrant and active role educating youth and providing space for residents to learn more about healthy food growing and eating local food.

Richard Draut



Richard uses his design build skills to show off what is possible using recycled materials. From farmhouse renovations to a UN designed aquaponic system, there are numerous onsite examples of how design, beauty, and functionality can be manifested harmoniously.




We work with passionate educators, non-profits, and businesses who share a commitment to creating a healthy and just food system in Los Angeles. Our network includes Talent Search at LA Southwest College, Compton Jr. Posse, RootDown LA, 
Environmental Charter Middle School and iLead.
