2013 Growing Green Awards Winner: Business Leader -- California farmer and entrepreneur Larry Jacobs has been a pioneer in organic food production proving that we can grow profitable food without chemicals. After his own dangerous encounter with pesticides Larry dedicated his life's work to organic farming with innovative non-toxic pest control. From founding California-based Jacobs Farm, the nation's largest producer of fresh culinary organic herbs, to building the Del Cabo Co-operative, a 1,000 family farmer-strong partnership supporting organic growing in Baja, Mexico, to setting a legal precedent protecting organic farmers from drifting pesticides, Larry's efforts inspire new sustainable food opportunities for thousands of families across the Western Hemisphere.
