Western Growers is collaborating with the California Community College’s Agriculture, Water and Environmental Technologies (AWET) Program to identify the current workforce training gaps in the agricultural sector. The information collected will be used to bring more training to the South Bay region through Workforce Development Offices in each county.
Farmers and ranchers in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, and San Mateo Counties are encouraged to complete the twelve-question Agricultural Workforce Development Survey. Your participation will ensure the data collected is representative and inclusive and will help determine California’s agricultural workforce needs.
