Santa Cruz: Educating for Sustainable Living

So, yeah, Santa Cruz has the rep of being hippie central, and maybe a little flakey, but the students we met last night were some of the brightest, most engaged I've met in a long time. We had a particularly delicious meal with the sun breaking through after days of rain and with all organic all local foods, including a freshly made desert with just-picked kiwis. Got a tour of the working farm where our tour coordinator had studied last year as an apprentice. If you're looking to get your hands dirty and learn from the organic masters, this is your place.--Anna
