Marin Municipal Water District staff is looking forward to participating in another exciting Farm Day event this year. Sponsored by Marin Master Gardeners, Farm Day brings together Northern California ranchers, farmers, producers and educators to engage 2,000 pre-kindergarten through third-grade children from around Marin County in hands-on learning opportunities about the source of some of their food.
The theme for this year’s Farm Day is “Bridging Farm to City.” Participating students, parents and teachers will have the opportunity to see a variety of live farm animals up close, including cows, goats, sheep, poultry and rabbits. In addition, they will learn about farm animals, gardens, environmental education, and the importance of agriculture and farming in Marin through a variety of hands-on, interactive games and activities.
If you attend this event, be sure to stop by MMWD’s table to learn all about water supply, conservation and watershed protection.
