AP STORY: Farmworkers to organic farmers

Gosia Wozniacka AP STORIES

I have been wanting to write about ALBA, the Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association, ever since I moved to central California. The program trains farmworkers to become small scale farmers, offering them a step up on the ladder of agriculture and allowing them to start a self-sustaining business. Plus, the program teaches about organic farming, mindful of the fact that many farmworkers are exposed to numerous pesticides in the fields. This is another story in my series about how farmworkers are trying to climb out of low-wage field hand jobs and take leadership in California’s agricultural system.
