Last week, Western Growers submitted comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) criticizing their proposed regulations defining the waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). The agencies requested public comments on the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule that determine the range of waters that fall under the federal government’s jurisdiction.

A.G. Kawamura, owner and partner of Orange County Produce, L.L.C. and Western Growers Board Director, recently spoke at a local TEDx Orange Coast Conference taking on the notion that our national food system is broken and needs fixed.  His speech entitled, “Food is a privilege, not a right,” takes on the critics who think that we need to change our views about food and agriculture.
