Thanks to our members’ continued support, the Western Growers Foundation celebrated many achievements this year. Continuing the momentum, we plan to further enhance our school garden program by aligning it closer with curriculum relating to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

In 2016, Western Growers Foundation awarded school garden grants to 25 schools in Arizona, and 20 schools in California. Since its inception, the Foundation has funded 1,061 school garden programs.

The holidays are a time of giving when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year donations. This year, Western Growers Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday to help raise awareness of the Foundation and our school garden program.

Please consider making a gift to the Western Growers Foundation today. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of so many children. Donations can be made online here.

For questions, please contact Ryan Zilker at (949) 885-2249.
