Organic Berry Farming at JSM Organics

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

$50

This field day is targeted to both farmers and the general public. There will be plenty of educational opportunities to learn about strawberry production, including the use of biodegradable plastic row covers, no-till research, and marketing. We will celebrate owner Javier Zamora’s Mexican heritage with a Cinco de Mayo celebration, and all attendees will have the opportunity to pick strawberries to take home.
JSM Organics was founded by Javier Zamora, who was born and raised in farming family in Mexico. After studying organic horticulture at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz County, he went through a farmer training program at ALBA (the Agriculture & Land-Based Training Association). JSM Organics has grown to dozens of acres of the last five years and now employs almost 30 people, with year-round organic production of a diverse set of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
