State Agency Reps See Benefit of WG School Gardens Program

Northern California may be in the middle of a “river” of storms, but that didn’t stop two state agency representatives from getting out and seeing first-hand what state funds can accomplish. Western Growers Foundation visited school garden grant recipient, Oak Park Preschool in Sacramento, Calif. Wednesday. The school received $1,000 as part of a grant funded by California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). They were one of 100 recipients selected to create and sustain an edible school garden.
