Join AGQ Labs USA for the 5th Annual Ventura County Farm Day on next November, 4th! An annual multi-location event featuring tours and activities on over 20 working farms in Ventura County
AGQ Labs USA will be hosting one more year the Ventura County Farm Day. A unique opportunity to see how a Testing Laboratory works. Our Lab Director, Jesse Calvillo, will explain how we analyze the samples received from the field (fresh produces, soils water, leaves, etc.) to help clients get the best out of their land as well as test the food we’re eating to make sure it’s safe to eat.
Tours will be given every hour from 10:30 am until 2:30 pm.
About SEEAG and Farm Day – Helping kids understand the true origins of their food
Mary Maranville founded Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) in 2008. Even with Ventura County’s rich agricultural heritage, children don’t make the connection between the acres of farmland around them and the food on their tables. This education program helps make that connection. Providing kids with field trips to local farms brings the message home even further.
SEEAG’s mission is to educate children about the farm origins of their food from field to table while cultivating visceral connections to the surrounding farmland and its contribution to nutritional wellbeing.
SEEAG’s Agricultural Education Programs – “The Journey of Our Food From Field to Fork”, “The Journey of a Lemon & Ventura County Specialty Crops”, and “STEM-based Careers in Agriculture” — is offered to schools throughout Ventura and Los Angeles Counties during the school year.
