Larry Jacobs and Sandra Belin’s co-op has trained over 400 Mexican farmers and their families in organic growing, administrative skills, and farm technology since the program’s conception in 1985. The Del Cabo co-op is devoted to helping small-scale subsistence farming communities prosper and become competitive in international markets. Jacobs and Belin believe in social and environmental responsibility, using recyclable and post-consumer waste based packaging as often as possible. They also help the children of their growers to understand the basics of the organics industry through activities like their “Safety on the Job” art contest.
