Cultivators of Change – celebrating our shared diversity

Secretary Ross last week at the Cultivating Change Summit in Sacramento.

Earlier this month I had pleasure to speak before the Cultivating Change Summit in Sacramento. The summit brought together LGBT agriculturalists from around the world who are working toward an equitable industry environment that is inclusive of all. It was a true honor for me to be recognized at the conference as a 2017 Cultivator of Change.

California celebrates the diversity of our agricultural family. Diversity is not only our strength in agricultural production (large/small, organic/conventional) but also our strength in connecting to our communities and consumers. It’s not just the products we grow and produce, but also about the people who help to farm, harvest, transport and market the food we enjoy every day.

LGBT agriculturalists are an important part of California agriculture – not just for LGBT Pride Month, but every day.

California welcomes and celebrates you as part of our agricultural community!
