This year we were once again happy to be part of South Monterey County’s Farm Day on March 13, 2013.
The agricultural industry of Monterey County comes together every year to provide an educational enrichment program for all third grade students in the county. This program brings together business, industry, community and education to benefit students.
Farm Day provides information and hands on demonstrations about the agricultural industry of Monterey County. It allows the students an opportunity to be exposed to various aspects of agriculture: everything from food production to beekeeping and wreath making.
We presented to 450 – 500 third graders. The kids really enjoyed all the fragrance of the herbs and lavender we shared with them. They were especially interested in the lavender soaps in the shape of eggs we had for Easter. We look forward to participating again next year and teaching the kids about our business.
