Sierra County Extension - Annual Events
Ag Day is dedicated to the children of our community. Our hope is to demonstrate the many aspects of the industry and impress on the children the importance of agriculture for their lives.
Ag Day is meant to touch the children's hearts and show them where many of their articles of clothing, food and shelter come from. These items are produced from our land (renewable resources). We want to plant a seed of encouragement, water it with knowledge, and shed light on the many diverse areas of agriculture.
We realize the importance of teaching the younger generation about agriculture and this event gives us the opportunity to present many different lessons in their own environment. Each demonstration site will teach a facet of agriculture or relative thereof.
