AgSafe, an agriculture-based safety organization, has developed a food safety training course for produce harvesting. This class will be helpful to everyone in the produce business especially those involved in harvesting specialty crops.  It will give supervisors, foremen, crew leads and field workers basic knowledge regarding sanitation and hygiene principles that are often noted in food safety audits.

It’s almost Memorial Day and that means summer is almost here.  That also means it’s time for the Western Growers Membership Renewal Drive. Membership in Western Growers is an investment in your future.  Thousands of members understand the value of belonging to the organization and all the benefits you get as a member.   As an added incentive, all memberships that are renewed by June 21 will be entered into a drawing for $500.

Board Meeting left town clear about one thing: despite what is being said in the media about immigration reform being dead, there still remains a window of opportunity for action this year. Led by Western Growers Chairman Bruce Taylor and CEO and President Tom Nassif, members of WG’s Board came to D.C. with messages for members of each party.

In response to an increasing interest in solar energy systems from our members, Western Growers Science and Technology staff have assembled a list of subject matter experts who understand the marketplace and work directly with solar vendors that have been independently vetted for projects in the agricultural sector.  These experts work with credible solar vendors and can provide reliable information on financing and leasing arrangements.
