The California Report Magazine –  LGBT Farmworker Discrimination

“Many California farmworkers are so desperate to keep their jobs that they rarely complain when there’s a problem at work. When those farmworkers are gay, lesbian or transgender, they may face harassment or even earn less pay because of their sexual orientation. Now, a new project is helping them learn about their rights under California law.”

Great news! I am still working on my own kitchen garden and it is good to see such a high profile garden!
