SACRAMENTO — Today, March 22, California Department of Food and Agriculture is partnering with the California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom to host the state’s annual celebration of agriculture, California Ag Day at the Capitol.
In recognition of the bounty that our state’s farmers and ranchers produce with pride and highlight the diverse and significant roles we all play in our state’s dynamic and complex food system, this year’s theme is “CA Grown: Ag Proud!”.
State Board of Food and Agriculture President Craig McNamara, California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom Executive Director Judy Culbertson, and California Women for Agriculture president Jeanette Lombardo will be participating.
Ag Day is an annual event to recognize California’s agricultural community by showcasing the many crops and commodities that are produced in our state. It is also a day for farmers and ranchers to show their appreciation by bringing together state legislators, government leaders and the public for agricultural education.
