SEEAG Seeks Sponsors and Participants For 2024 Farm Day Events

Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG), the nonprofit that organizes Santa Barbara County Farm Day and Ventura County Farm Day, is looking for farmers, agricultural-related businesses, and others to become event sponsors and participants. The 2024 Santa Barbara County Farm Day will be on August 24, while Ventura County Farm Day will be on November 2.
“Farm Day has grown to become the largest community agricultural education and outreach program in California,” says Mary Maranville, SEEAG’s founder and CEO. “Over 15,000 people visit our agricultural venues during our two Farm Days.”
Each year on Farm Day, sponsoring farms and ag-related businesses open their doors to the public. They offer tours, tastings, and produce and product giveaways. Other sponsors have booths at the Farm Day Hub and are included in Farm Day marketing campaigns.
“Farm Day visitors come away from the tours with a deeper appreciation and understanding of agriculture’s importance as they learn about what goes into planting, growing, and harvesting our food. By sponsoring and participating in Farm Day, you’re demonstrating your commitment to connecting the public with the agricultural community,” says Maranville.
Current Farm Day sponsors include Driscoll’s, Gene Haas Foundation, County of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Foundation, Edwin and Jeanne Woods Family Foundation, AgWest Farm Credit, California Giant Berry Farms, Church Brothers Farms, Mission Produce, The Land Trust of Santa Barbara, Al Lowe Construction, Duda Farms, Engle & Gray, Innovative Produce, Santa Maria Berry Farms and Scott Family Foundation.

Founded in 2008, Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that aims to help young students understand the origins of their food by bridging the gap between agriculture and consumption through its agricultural education programming. SEEAG’s “The Farm Lab” program teaches schoolchildren about the origins of their food and the importance of local farmland by providing schools with classroom agricultural education and free field trips to farms. Through this and other SEEAG programs, over 100,000 elementary school students in Central and Southern California have increased their understanding of the food journey. Each year, it hosts Santa Barbara Farm Day and Ventura County Farm Day where the public can visit local farms and other agriculture-related entities.
