August 10, 1958, Salinas, California. Farm worker sprays boxed up lettuce on the way to market.

In 1958 in Salinas, California, farmers sprayed boxed up lettuce on the way to market.  Organic agriculture and Community Supported Agriculture is a modern alternative to this kind of reckless application of chemicals to our food.  Watch a film called “Broken Limbs” about Washington apple growers today who found their way from globalization bankruptcies to Community Supported Agriculture small farm revival.  Inspiring and full of hope for a future without chemical pollution and 10 thousand mile foods.   It’s the second film of this sort I have watched recently.  The other is called “The Real Dirt on Farmer John.”
