More than a thousand students will make their way to Fairplex next week to celebrate all things Agriculture for the Schools’ Agriculture and Nutrition Fair, April 20-24. Students have entered projects on hydroponics, quilting, paintings, birdhouses, terrariums, horticulture, mission models and more. They will compete in a spelling bee and other activities while they are here. Special guest is Trent Loos, a true American cowboy and farmer who advocates for agriculture and farming through his satellite show and radio program.
This event attracts students, families, educators and community members to celebrate the achievements of local students (pre-K through high school) and teachers, and to educate the attendees about the importance of agriculture and nutrition to California. It is sponsored by the state of California’s 48th District Agricultural Association.
It’s open to the public so stop by and check out all the great entries and displays. We need to remember what an important role agriculture plays in California. The hours of the Ag and Nutrition Fair are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
