The wonderful twin articles (Nov.9) by Jude Coleman, “Aggressively Protecting Farm Water” and on a report about Pajaro Valley’s battle to avoid wasting its water basin, had been filled with optimistic details about the advantages gained for farming from the foresight that safeguarded its water provides.
As a member of CORA, Campaign for Organic & Regenerative Agriculture, I need to see such foresight in creating a near-future the place standard growers transition from a reliance on pesticide use to 100% organic agriculture. In such a future, everybody will profit from agriculture that regenerates the soil, captures carbon, retains farmworkers, their kids and space residents secure, and produces extra healthful meals. This was the main focus of CORA’s Nov. 14 occasion “Achieving a Pesticide-Free Pajaro Valley.”
