Western Growers Foundation awarded fifty Arizona K-12 schools with $75,000 in grant money to create and sustain their own edible fruit and vegetable gardens. Each school will receive $1,500 plus seeds and other materials. The grants were provided through the Arizona Department of Agriculture as part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Specialty Crop Block Grant.

Effective this month, Western Growers Insurance Services (WGIS) is revising the fees it charges for all of its safety and loss control activities.  Changes have not been made to the fee structure for over three years; however, fees for some courses will actually be reduced.  A number of issues have changed in the industry that made it necessary to revise fees in order to keep pace with the industry.
