The Agriculture and Land-Based Training
Association (ALBA) provides educational and business
opportunities for farm workers and aspiring farmers to grow
and sell crops grown on two organic farms in Monterey
Our mission is to advance economic
viability, social equity and ecological land management
among limited-resource and aspiring farmers. We work to
create opportunities for family farms while providing
education and demonstration on conservation, habitat
restoration, marketing and whole farm planning.
