November is Arizona Leafy Greens Month!
We officially kicked off Arizona Leafy Greens Month with a gubernatorial proclamation, and distribution of a press release announcing the annual harvest season. We also celebrated the season kickoff on Arizona Leafy Greens Facebook page with a photo of the signed proclamation and a post that asked followers how they planned to celebrate the month.
If you haven't already done so, please "Like" Arizona Leafy Greens Facebook page, as there will be engaging content posted throughout the month.
The celebration continues this Saturday, November 3, 2018 the Arizona LGMA and Yuma Safe Produce Council along with volunteers will be on-site giving away hundreds of Arizona Leafy Greens/Yuma Safe Produce Council canvas bags at grocers throughout Yuma, as well as Uptown Phoenix Farmers Market in central Phoenix.
Volunteers will be thanking shoppers for supporting Arizona's leafy greens industry and distributing informational brochures about the industry's economic impact and the work of the Arizona Leafy Greens, the Leafy Greens Food Safety Task Force and the Yuma Safe Produce Council.
