Thank you for your participation and support of the Schools' Agriculture and Nutrition Program/Fair.
You and your third or fourth grade students will learn how agriculture (water, plants, bees, fiber, food, and dairy) contributes to our everyday lives. From the food we eat to the clothes we wear, agriculture affects us all.
AG DAY LA is filled with valuable hands-on educational experiences for third and fourth grade school students. It provides a fun and exciting way for teachers to address State Standards, as well as to promote agricultural literacy.
AG DAY LA is a joint partnership of the 48th District Agricultural Association, Los Angeles County Farm Bureau, the Los Angeles County Department of Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures, the California Women for Agriculture-Los Angeles Chapter, Beekeepers Association and Southern California Beekeepers Association, Los Angeles County 4H-UC Cooperative Extension, and Cal Poly Pomona. This event is designed to educate L.A. County’s students about the state’s number one industry-agriculture!

The fair is an agricultural educational fair featuring thousands of individual and classroom entries from hundreds of schools in the greater Los Angeles basin and surrounding areas.
