Part of our mission to improve the #agriculture industry is to “get children out of the fields and into schools,” and so we ensure that none of our farms in the U.S. or Mexico have any child labor. That said, sometimes it’s fun to bring the wonders of the farm to children at school! We recently sponsored a Zoom class for a local school in Salinas, CA about the importance of agriculture in the community. Kids were given a pot, seeds, soil, and a fun lesson on how to grow. #CultivatePositiveChange

Our farms in Baja California help us follow the sun south of the border so that we can always be in the best growing region, no matter the season. One way we support the local community there is by contributing to the Autonomous University of Baja California’s annual fundraiser Armonía (harmony), where the students’ culinary and artistic talents are put on full display. This year’s theme was the 1920s. Learn more about #UABC, northwest Mexico’s leading university, at www.uabc.mx. #Armonia2018
