In 2021, Western Growers received nearly $750,000 in grant funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Over the next three and a half years, these funds will be used to educate the next generation of agriculture employee.

WG will be working with California Community College ag faculty throughout the state to develop educational modules that can be quickly embedded in current courses at any community college.
