Experience our Passion


“The beautiful rolling hills of the Pierce Farm and the white wood fences that divide it from the city mark the San Fernando Valley as a different kind of place in Los Angeles, a place that treasures California’s land. Here city people have fruit trees that produce bountiful citrus crops in the dead of winter, and neighbors knock on the door to offer bags of home-grown zucchini and lemons. The Pierce Farm reminds us that knowledge and effort transform dirt and seeds into food and clothing; and Pierce College is a special place, where the accumulated knowledge of mankind is available to all who make the effort.” –Susan Shelley
