GMO and strawberries!
My favorite place that we went was Swanton berry farm, it was such a great tour that it was only supposed to last an hour but instead lasted three. We walked around an amazing farm that wasn’t using any conventional pesticides to get rid of bugs. They use broccoli as their substitute for pesticides. One of the main things they grow is strawberries, and they were saying how it’s hard to grow strawberries naturally, but they are able to because of their use of brocoli and their focus on healthry soil. They also strive to create the best working conditions possible for their workers. Emloyees stay on for decades, instead of the industry average of four years, and have full health insurance. Some of the workers even make more than their manager which never happens on industrial farms. On conventional strawberry farms the workers can only work for up to four year because they get back problems from bending over picking things up so much that it takes out their lower back. After that tour we went over to their strawberry field ovelooking the Pacific and got to pick fresh strawberries while looking at the ocean. That was the high light of the trip by far!
