If you have a special place in your heart for local family farmers, embrace the opportunity to hop on a tour bus with folks attending the annual Californians for Pesticide Reform Conference on March 19th. A special field trip will offer participants the chance to “meet local farmers, hear about their successes and challenges, and see (and taste) the fruits of their labors.” Visits include Fremont Community Garden in Sacramento, Soil Born Farms in Rancho Cordova, Otow Orchard in Granite Bay, and Del Rio Botanical in West Sacramento.
Date: Friday, March 19th
Location: Participants meet outside the California Endowment office in downtown Sacramento, 1414 K Street, Suite 500
