California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom and the Dave Joerger Foundation (NBA Head Coach Dave Joerger of the Sacramento Kings) is excited to host the inaugural Sacramento Farm Day on March 23, 2018.
We will be bringing 1,000+ students, teachers, and presenters together for a day filled with hands-on educational opportunities geared to teach students about the importance of California agriculture. We can't do this alone... we need YOU! We are inviting a select group of agricultural organizations to host stations that classrooms will rotate between.
Each rotation will consist of 10 minutes of presentation with 5 minutes of transition time between stations. Presenters will speak to 16 groups of approximately 30 students (8 groups in the morning and 8 groups in the afternoon).
It is our goal to have each presentation be engaging, hands-on, and educational. Your organization may already have a presentation/activity that will fit perfectly for this event. Otherwise, we would be happy to help you develop an activity that is sure to be a success!
The event will be held on the California Farm Bureau Federation grounds in Sacramento. Stations will be provided a 10'x10' space, 1 table, and 1 chair. Additional space and resources potentially available upon request.
One of the main goals of this event is to provide teachers with resources to help bring agriculture into their classrooms. We would be happy to distribute materials/resources that you'd like to share with the participating teachers. If you are interested in this, please plan for 45 teachers and 1,000 students (more specific numbers available closer to the event).
