at The Farm and Food Lab

SFUA is thrilled to be operating the Farm + Food Lab, in partnership with the City of Irvine and collaborating with the UCCE Master Gardeners of Orange County.

The Farm + Food Lab, located with the Orange County Great Park, is an interactive outdoor classroom for visitors of all ages, featuring numerous agricultural methods, interactive exhibits, and learning gardens. It is a working and dynamic organic agricultural space with a mission to educate visitors about gardening, inspire innovative and unique ideas, and facilitate a thriving community of people working in partnership. The Farm + Food Lab is the perfect place to enhance your gardening knowledge or learn the basics about starting your first garden!

The Farm + Food Lab is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-3pm. Hours may vary on holidays, and the Farm + Food Lab may close due to weather. Please call the OC Great Park Visitors Center at 949-724-6247 for the most up-to-date information. Parking and admission are free.

If you are interested in scheduling a tour, volunteering, sponsoring a new educational or Ag technology exhibit, or have a question or comment, please e-mail us at
