On Tuesday, March 29, Western Growers was part of a group of agriculture and horticulture organizations that hosted a luncheon for Arizona legislators on the grounds of the state Capitol. Unofficially known as Ag Day at the Capitol, the legislators and other public officials came out in droves to mingle with staff and members from the host organizations at what has become an annual event (see picture gallery to the right). Arizona growers made available an array of fresh produce and some dairy products for Senate and House members to bag and take home and enjoy with their families.
