At Baja Son Growers, we feel strongly about giving back to the communities we operate in, and in the industry that we work in. Please take a moment to review these programs, as they reflect our values as a company. It is our pleasure to assist them in their missions.
Tour de Fresh
The Tour de Fresh is the first-of-its-kind, collaborative event that unites the most significant brands and influencers in the fresh produce industry for a four-day cycling event that raises funds to benefit the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools campaign. Baja Son Growers is proud to sponsor riders that are raising funds to bring more salad bars to the San Diego Unified School district. Giving students fresh produce creates a healthy environment for kids to learn and play.
Inspired by Tatum Bakker, a little girl who is a Salinas native with Spina Bifida, Tatum’s Garden is a community-wide volunteer effort to build the first fully-inclusive and accessible playground in Salinas. Baja Son Growers supports this amazing playground because we believe in a place where all children can come together, interact, be included and grow, through the gift of play. We are proud to partner with Tatum’s Garden.
Calexico High School
Supporting local children and youth in sports is something that Baja Son Growers feels very strongly about. Having a healthy and constructive place for the kids in our community is vital to their health and growth. At Calexico High School, we support both the Boys Wrestling Program and the Girls Varsity Basketball team. Go Bulldogs!
