Input Needed From Bay Area Farmers

Western Growers has collaborated with the California Community College’s Agriculture, Water and Environmental Technologies (AWET) Program to deliver the Agricultural Workforce Development Survey to Western Growers members in San Benito, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, and San Mateo.  The goal is to identify current workforce training gaps in the agricultural sector to develop pertinent training programs that meet the needs of the regional businesses.

We appreciate your time to support this workforce development initiative by taking this brief survey. It is essential to have the input of Western Growers members working in agriculture; only with such input can we better determine California’s agricultural workforce needs.
