Nevada County Resource Conservation District’s: Annual Farm Day
September 21, 2017, will mark Nevada County Ag in the Classroom’s 3rd Annual Farm Day at the Nevada County Fairgrounds! With the support of the Nevada County Fairgrounds CEO & staff, Nevada County Farm Bureau, and Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students, this event will host 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 visit will be hosted by Nevada County businesses, professional organizations, volunteers, and FFA students!
