Secretary Ross joins First Partner in learning how urban farms benefit child nutrition

California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom (front center) and CDFA Secretary Karen Ross (front left) are led on a tour of Fiery Ginger Farm by farm co-founder Shayne Zurilgen last week. Fiery Ginger Farm is a 2-acre urban farm in West Sacramento located on land leased from Washington Unified School District. The farm grows food for schools, farmers’ markets, retail and restaurants. Fiery Ginger Farm illustrates the ways small farms can create innovative business models and make an impact in their community through educational activities with students and developing relationships with farm to school partners to promote child nutrition.
