Before this seminar I didn’t give much thought to farming. When I am hungry I go to the store and buy what I want. This class has opened my eyes (wide!) to all that farming entails and how challenging the business of agriculture is. I learned so much about water! I would highly recommend this seminar to my colleagues.

This has been an amazing experience. I have learned so much about dairy and farms. The wide variety of career opportunities was eye opening. The experience of staying with a farm family was the opportunity to see and have a personal touch with actual farmers. I would and will promote this class to other teachers. Being from Southern California we do not fully understand the “true” farming that happens in our state. If I were to talk to a future sponsor I would like them to know that the actual experience is so much better than reading about it. Additionally the impact of this program can be far reaching. 🙂

I come from a farming family, but the things I learned during the last 3 days, I did not experience.

I have learned so much about what it means to buy California products, why it counts and most important what symbols to look for.

I learned so much. The best conference I’ve been to in 28 years of education. Keep doing it!

This week’s experience has motivated me to teach my students more about California agriculture and how hard the farmer works to provide the nation with a safe food supply.
This was powerful. I gained so much knowledge and love for ag/farmers/cattle
This is so important for teachers to experience!

I would tell another teacher that it was a eye-opening experience. I learned a lot about ll the different jobs that involved agriculture. I feel for all the farmers and dairymen and what they have to deal with. I’ll never look a vegetable or gallon of milk without thinking of what work went into producing it.
