EUSD Farm Lab & DREAMS Campus is an innovative indoor and outdoor educational campus for all students in the Encinitas Union School District. Students learn Next Generation Science using the DREAMS approach to education and engaging in experiential science lessons that are centered around nutrition and the environment.

DREAMS (or Design, Research, Engineering, Art, Math and Science) is a model for learning that expands on the STEM model. ​The focus with DREAMS is on design thinking and research.  Students begin with a question to be solved, a problem to be fixed or an interesting idea. They then gather and analyze information to support their work in these content areas. Through this process students take their learning to higher levels of understanding.

The EUSD Farm Lab site includes:
• An educational campus
• A one-acre hands on educational garden
• Four acres of dedicated fields for growing crops for EUSD school lunches
• Three-quarter-acre community garden: www.encinitascommunitygarden.org
