Cadiz hosts Twentynine Palms elementary school students

November 7-8, 2012:  Cadiz Inc.’s farming manager, Lesley Thornburg, hosted approximately 100 third grade students from Twentynine Palms Elementary School and 30 fifth grade students from Palm Vista Elementary School for tours of the agricultural operations at the Cadiz Ranch. Thornburg led the students through the vineyards to observe our sustainable farming practices, including drip irrigation, and examine the produce before it is harvested.   While at the Ranch, the classes also learned about desert groundwater aquifers and the vast groundwater resources beneath Cadiz that provide water to the farming operations.
