Orange Conservancy – California’s Green (129)

Huell visits the Inland Orange Conservancy in Redlands to learn about how a small grassroots organization is trying to connect local citrus farmers with people in the community who don’t want to see the last remnants of the citrus industry get bulldozed in the name of “progress.” The Conservancy helps farmers sell their crops directly to consumers and also provides literally tons of fruit to low income families for free. In one year alone they donated 49 tons of fruit that would have normally been left to rot because it was not “perfect.”
