The last two days of meetings in our growing regions have been met with good discussion and input from growers in attendance. It stands out to me how important it is that we continue these annual meetings as a way for growers who do not normally come to the regular schedule Commission meetings to hear how the Commission is providing value to its growers.
The report provides a great snapshot of activity that highlights a year’s worth of effort and committee work. Commissioners have taken time to address the upcoming referendum and answered any questions from growers about the recent petition decision. The report rounds out with a 2010 outlook of goals and objectives on important projects in each of the Commission’s four focus areas.
Well, I am in Watsonville this morning to meet with growers in this region and looking forward to sharing with them what we’re doing and where we’re going to encourage people to buy more California Grown flowers.
