Loma Vista Farm

The Loma Vista Farm is a working farm and outdoor classroom which supports the academic and environmental programs of Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy, a public K-8 school.  Support for the animals comes from the Friends of Loma Vista Farm. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom for LVESA students and available for field trips by contacting Principal Britt Hammon (bhammon@Vallejo.k12.ca.us) at (707) 556-8550 or Farmer Rita at (707) 556-8550. Community members and guests are welcome to visit the farm during school hours from 9 am - 3 pm.  Children love seeing the Alpacas, Goats, Cows, Chickens, Sheep, Horses and a variety of ducks and geese.  The farm is also home to a large vegetable garden tended by the Loma Vista students.  The vegetables are used in nutrition activities for our students. 

Volunteer Work Parties are held every few months at the LVESA Farm  All community members, young and old, are invited to come and work at the farm.  We need people to help with the gardens, keep the tan bark neat, clean the animal pens and other general maintenance.  Check back periodically for an update on the next Volunteer Work Party.

LVESA Farm Partners with Sustainable Solano

LOMA VISTA FARM has been a resource for environmental education and experiences for Vallejo's children and community for over four decades. SUSTAINABLE SOLANO has been working towards community sustainability since 1999. These two natural partners are coming together to create a Permaculture Demonstration Public Garden. On Saturday November 18 the public was invited to work on the installation of the demonstration garden at VCUSD's Loma Vista Farm.

Permaculture is centered on earth care, people care, and fair share. Sustainable Solano and VCUSD provide opportunities for the public to learn about how these permaculture concepts apply to this garden and our community, as well as how it can be applied to your own gardens.  If you have questions, please contact, Sustainable Landscaping Manager, Nicole Newell at nicole@sustainablesolano.org

Loma Vista & VCUSD News

1/9/18

 Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy was visited by Jesse Bethel Grad, Cal Berkeley athlete, and Super Bowl winning Denver Bronco CJ Anderson on Monday afternoon.  He was here to promote his new organization which looks to offer vital life experiences to impact and change the culture of success for local children and teens.  The facility is on Mare Island, and it will promote academics and athletics to broaden the horizons of our youth and build the roadmaps for achievement.  The Dreams Never Die Foundation is a 501(c) non profit organization with a mission to provide inner city and low-income youth the resources needed to persevere and ultimately reach their maximum potential in academics and/or athletics.  He went to school at Elsa Widenmann, Solano and JBHS, and was friends with our very own Mr. Henry and Mr. McGriff.  If you would like more information about the organization, check their web site at www.dndfoundation22.com or contact Program Director Clifton Hayes at c.hayes@dndfoundation22.com

Principal Britt Hammon

Principal HammonHello Friends and Family,

There are many things which make Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy a special place for learning. We remain committed to working together as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), to utilize the knowledge and skills each Team member possesses, to communicate, and to partner effectively with parents to ensure their child's success in school. Our vision continues to be to create a learning community where every child will achieve to his/her highest potential. Loma Vista is a safe place where children are free to learn, grow, make mistakes and learn from these mistakes. We provide a challenging program to all students in a caring way, with support systems for all levels.

We are very pleased with the progress we have made developing as an Environmental Science Academy over the last four years.  All classes and students visit the Loma Vista Farm each week and participate in hands-on cooking, animal care, vegetable farming, and science lessons taught by their Teachers, Farmer Rita, Farmer Alisha, and sometimes the Principal!

Loma Vista is also home to only one of two working farms in the country. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom that provides children with standards based hands-on learning opportunities to bolster their academic skills in reading, writing, math, social science, language arts and science. To learn more about the farm, please visit the Loma Vista Farm website which can be found on the top of this page. For your convenience, the farm website is http://www.lomavistafarm.org.

We are very lucky to have a dedicated STEAM lab for our students in grades K-5.  Our students work on long-term projects which incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. LVESA has won STEAM awards two years in a row. We have Mrs Imelda Enos and Ms. Rebecca Carcamo who work with our students and classroom teachers.

When choosing a school for your children, please consider Loma Vista.  As a K-8 school we are able to offer a close-knit family-centered school which offers many supports to students and families.  Our Academic Support Provider, Kathi Hill, is our school-community link who works to remove all barriers to student success. 

Looking forward to our Partnership,

Britt Hammon, Principal

It's always a great day to be an Owl!

Middle School Puts A Scare into Loma Vista

Once again this year, Mr. Henderson and the Loma Vista Middle School Teachers and Students have put together frightful fun for our school community.  Students and family members were taken on guided tours through the middle school with the intensity of the "scare" increasing with the age and willingness of the visitors.  There was lots of screams and peels of laughter, from the youngest of our babies to Grannys and Gramps.  Until next year, may the spookiness be with you!
