On a rainy day in late March, Drew and Chelsea (McClarty) Ketelsen of HMC Farms and WG’s Paula Olson made a whirlwind tour around Oakland, Calif. The McClarty family donated $10,000 to the Western Growers Foundation and, after a rigorous application process, it awarded several Oakland schools $1,000 each to grow and sustain a fruit and vegetable garden.
