About Jody Lamb

Plum Oaks is our home, childcare, and developing farm. Surrounded by neighboring vineyards and situated on nine acres of plum orchards, mature oak trees, and grassy pastures in West Santa Rosa, just minutes from Sebastopol. In this beautiful setting, the ocean air crawls in to refresh us each night and we welcome each new day with a sense of hope and wonder.


From plums to pears, apples to persimmons, nature offers us a variety of fruit that we enjoy sharing with the families who enroll with us. Our chickens, outdoor cats, and horse are a central part in our everyday life. In addition to animals, we have a vegetable garden that children help plant, maintain, and harvest. Nature is at our doorstep, providing us with the ultimate classroom.
