Our members are an integral part of the Yuma community. We all believe in giving to the community that gives to all of us. Our members take part in the following organizations:
Field to Feast Tours – Experience what it’s like to harvest crops and eat the vegetables of your labor. During the half-day tour led by local growers, learn about food safety and local growing areas. Then dine on a lunch that you helped harvest and that is prepared by culinary students from Arizona Western College.
Harvest Dinner – Join in celebrating the many partnerships between local agriculture and the community. Local chefs create a menu consisting of ingredients grown in the Desert Southwest. Proceeds from the event support the Yuma County Ag Producers Scholarship Fund.
Yuma Community Food Bank – Helping supply fresh fruit and vegetables to the local community food bank and our neighbors in our community where there is a high percentage of food insecure families.
Yuma Area Ag Council – Designed to educate and foster relationships, inform policymakers, the media and the general public about the importance of local agriculture. yaac.org
