Last Friday, Western Growers teamed with partner Arizona agriculture organizations to host an agricultural tour for a bi-partisan group of legislative interns from the Arizona House and Senate. The tour, which took place at facilities west of downtown Phoenix, is an annual event designed to educate up-and-coming young professionals on the importance of agriculture in Arizona.
