Western Growers President and CEO Tom Nassif issued the following statement in support of H.R. 5078, a bill that would delay action on EPA’s Water of the U.S. Rule:    

"Western Growers members strongly believe in the value of clean water, but we also believe that in administering the Clean Water Act the EPA and Army Corps must do so with outmost input from state and local officials. HR 5078 intends to ensure that before a new rule for the Clean Water Act can be issued that proper state and local consultation be taken. Western Growers supports this effort and passage of this bill."

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.
