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.


Community members, we offer this space for collaboration, commoning, and creation. We want to navigate this complex and uncertain time through collective solidarity, and we need your voice and action to accomplish this. 


We invite you to come to visit! Teachers, residents, 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 and 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 farm offers an intergenerational group a place to explore the natural world, question where their food comes from, and consider what they put in their bodies. Working with animals is a unique learning experience that leads to 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.
