Growing Green

A farmer in California rides an ATV through his vineyard to examine the grape vines. Between the vines grow oats and vetch, which keep out weeds, make home for beneficial bugs, and enrich the soil. This picture appeared in a December 1995 story about the sustainable agriculture movement.
