Fred Cline learned a love for farming from his grandfather Valeriano Jacuzzi at their ranch in Oakley. This area in Contra Costa County was a centre for immigrants who planted some of the original grapevines. After bringing these forgotten vines back to life, Fred and his friend Bobby Cannard developed The Green String method of “beyond sustainable” farming. Students at Green String learn how to respect the earth and respond to the needs of their environment as they raise food that brought health to local populations. So they preserve the past and protect the land for the future. We love them.
