Karla is the part owner of Stahlbush Island Farms, an organic vegetable and fruit farm. The farm has been in her family for 123 years and when it came her turn to run the farm, she decided to go away from the conventional family crops and started with two crops. Today, Stahlbush Island Farms export to 19 countries, China being the second most exported. I found it interesting to hear that there are 186 ethanol plants running in the U.S. Karla mentioned how if all 186 plants were running at full capacity, they would use 36% of the U.S. corn supply. She also mentioned how the ethanol plants are one of the reasons for the current Global Perfect Storm that is taking place currently.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
