Secretary Ross joins California students in recognition of Ag Week

The annual Ag Week is underway in California and the US, with Ag Day 21 occurring tomorrow. In recognition of the week, CDFA secretary Karen Ross joined the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom to virtually welcome more than 5,000 students to the organization’s Farm Day.

The photo above shows Secretary Ross speaking via video to students at Fairmont Elementary School in Fresno. Students there learn about soil science and engineering thanks to a two-acre school garden where they they help test soil pH, plant vegetables that do well in that type of soil, and build an irrigation system.

Please join CDFA in recognizing Ag Day tomorrow—the theme is “Celebrating Resilience”—by posting content on social media platforms with the following hashtags: #AgDay21 #CaAgDay2021 #CelebratingResilience
