If you like heartwarming success stories, then you must meet Javier Zamora of JSM Organics! This is a man whose first love for farming started in elementary school in Michoacan, Mexico. His path from growing carrots and radishes at the age of 7 to landing at The Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association (ALBA) at 38 in Salinas, CA was a bumpy one. Through perseverance, he returned to his passion for farming specializing in growing organic strawberries and flowers.
Tune in to our May 13 (12 pm PST) Solutionaries Speak as Javier joins Anne Freiwald of Vital Cycles for a lively conversation about:
• How he grew his organic farm from 1 to over 100 acres with hundreds of varieties of flowers and 6 different varieties of the most delicious strawberries
• How JSM Organics models just working conditions for farm workers on the Central Coast and how community members can advocate for those responsible for bringing fresh food to our tables
• His strategies to promote crop diversity, reducing water consumption, and increasing organic matter in the soil
• What Readycycle packaging is and why JSM Organics is one of the first berry farms to use it
