Earth Day. Today and Every Day.

From the wheat fields in Minnesota to the vineyards in California, we thank growers of every kind for making Earth Day, every day. As we celebrate Earth Day 2015, we celebrate our CAEP hosts who are setting a precedent for all by demonstrating what it means to be good stewards of the land.

CAEP Enology host, Frog’s Leap Winery is truly a pioneer of sustainability in the wine industry setting an example for not only other wineries, but our enology interns and trainees from around the globe. This organic and biodynamic vineyard operates 100% off the grid by using solar power technologies. Frog’s Leap also incorporates dry farming practices in order to save millions of gallons of water a year.


With a wind turbine in the front and organic farm acres in the back, Bartlett’s Farm in Nantucket, MA is a true friend of the environment. This CAEP Horticulture host has been committed to the environment for over 150 years and continues to demonstrate sustainable practices for those in their community and our CAEP participants.

CAEP Agriculture host, Holland Harvesting has implemented practices on their farm that help protect our resources and save money! Rob and Sue Holland installed nine thermal solar units to help heat their farm shop year-round! The Holland’s are leading the way in the Great Plains!  Check out their solar panels below!

Earth Day is just a single day to reflect on what we can do better to take care of our precious planet. Although, as you take actions today to show how important the environment is to you, don’t forget to thank the farmers, winemakers, and horticulturalists who make this conscious effort every day of the year.
