Hidden Villa In the News

Living in Los Altos Magazine, March 2015

While many teens today can't tear themselves away from computer games and cellphones, some are building confidence and learning to perform sustainable farming practices outdoors. Tucked into the mountains at 26870  Moody Road in Los Altos Hills, the 1,600-acre  organic farm and nature preserve offers teen apprenticeships for potential farmers. Experienced farmers train teens to be aware of the food they should eat to stay healthy and eventually to work and develop the food that feeds those who work in high-tech and other businesses that sustain the local economy.

Hidden Villa’s hikers come from different backgrounds and areas around the region. The program dedicates time to meeting each other and establishing what community means beyond an initial extensive safety talk. Both of the program’s leaders are Wilderness First Responders trained in backcountry-specific first aid. But the trip’s purpose extends beyond shepherding students safely from point A to B. Any family planning an adventurous outing may want to think through what it means for a young person to take the lead.
