Farm Day 2016

Marin County Farm Day is a free, public event in which over 30 exhibitors provide hands-on interactive activities targeted for elementary school youth. On March 17, 2016 our partners joined us at Farm day to help showcase Marin County agriculture in many forms to our youth. Students are provided the opportunity to see farm animals, equipment, and even taste local dairy products. They also learn about the environment and new ways to explore the outside world around them.
