Join AGQ Labs for the Ventura County Farm Day. On Saturday, November 9, 2019 more than 15 Ventura County farms, ranches, and agricultural organizations will open their doors and invite the public to experience a day of agricultural activities and tours during the 7th Annual Ventura County Farm Day.
AGQ Labs will be hosting one more year the Ventura County Farm Day. A unique opportunity to see how a Testing Laboratory works. We will explain how we analyze the samples received from the field (fresh produces, soils, waters, 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.
Here you can find all Farm Tour locations.
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” – are offered to schools throughout Ventura and Los Angeles Counties during the school year. To learn more about their education programs visit their website.
AGQ Labs is also a proud sponsor of the Farm Fresh Mobile Classroom Van.
