Western Growers Foundation seeks to “create an edible garden in every interested Arizona and California school.” Can you imagine why a school would not be interested?
For over 80 years, Western Growers has been compromised of farmers in the two states. The foundation is the association’s outreach program, having given over $700K to over 500 schools. Given that the association’s farmers pack and ship nearly half of the nation’s produce, it would be great to see the mission of their foundation fulfilled.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
