Agriculture and Land–Based Training Association
Agriculture and Land–Based Training Association (ALBA) creates opportunities for low-income field laborers through land-based training in organic farm management, helping them advance their careers or pursue the dream of farm ownership. ALBA’s Farmer Education and Enterprise Development (FEED) project develops the organic farming skills of immigrant farmworkers to support a more equitable and environmentally sustainable agriculture sector on the 100-acre organic farm training facility in the Salinas Valley of California. Each year, some 75 limited-resource farmers gain affordable access to education, land, farming equipment and technical assistance.
