Farm City Day is an FREE educational field trip for all of Shasta Counties fourth grade students. The event is organized by the Shasta County Farm Bureau and sponsored by PG & E who provides funds for support materials which go to each attending class. For the 2013 event over 450 students and 18 teachers watched 20 minute presentations on these topics: Wildlife, Packing, Stockdogs, Rangeland Management, Worms, Farm to Fork and Planting Kale. These presentations were provided by volunteers from the community who donate their time to share about the importance of agriculture in Shasta County. Each class took home a wheelbarrow garden and bin full of lesson plans and free school supplies for each child. A thank you to Palo Cedro True Value for their suppot of the wheelbarrow gardens!
We hope you were able to join us for an evening of reconnecting with old friends while making new connections within the agriculture and business community. As a local, non profit, non governmental organization, the Shasta County Farm Bureau strives to improve the ability of local farmers and ranchers to provide a reliable food source. This event was also a night to honor our Distinguished Service Award and Elizabeth Albaugh Women in Agriculture award winners and present scholarship to many deserving high school and college students.
