Annual Farm Day

On September 22, 2016, Nevada County Ag in the Classroom hosted their 2nd Annual Farm Day at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. With the support of the Nevada County Fairgrounds CEO & staff, Nevada County Farm Bureauand Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students, this event hosted approximately 550 2nd and 3rd grade students and their teachers and chaperones from many different local schools for a day of fun hands-on experiences where lessons of agriculture are taught in the context of local farms and ranches.

Nevada County Ag in the Classroom is a local, grassroots collaboration of ranchers, farmers, agriculture teachers and students, businesses, food networks, and community volunteers who provide quality agriculture-related educational resources, programs, and training opportunities.  Each station that the students visited was hosted by Nevada County businesses, professional organizations, volunteers, and FFA students!  

This event was made possible by the Nevada County Ag in the Classroom participants, Nevada County Fairgrounds, and generous donations from these LOCAL businesses & organizations:
