Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture

In 2014, Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEE AG) committed to expand their 21st Century Farming and Agriculture program to reach an additional 5,000 elementary school students from Ventura and LA Counties over the course of one academic year. This hands-on agricultural literacy program helps children understand the food journey from field to consumption through a mix of in-class instruction and field trips to local farms. SEE AG also committed to improve the program's curriculum by further emphasizing sustainable agriculture practices and healthy nutrition habits.
