School Gardens

Enterprise Holdings, which offer extensive car rental and transportation services, donated $1,500 to the Western Growers Foundation yesterday to support its School Garden and Careers in Ag programs. Both programs are geared toward advancing knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics in areas related to farming and agriculture among students, from elementary school through college.

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.
