Marin County Farm Day

Marin County Farm Day was held on March 24th at the Marin County Civic Center. Students and teachers were given a hands on look at agriculture in Marin County.

Dairy Princess Emilie Strand was on hand to help teach children about dairy products. She asked them to pull the dairy items from her basket, leaving the other items behind. She also handed out Real CA Cheese bags, coloring books and pencils to the students. 

Students from all schools in the county were eligible to enter the essay and mural contests. There were some fantastic entries! The essays and murals will be on display during Marin County Fair. 

Thank you to Joyce Leveroni, Ellen Durrer, Annette Grossi, Ann Corda and Karen Taylor for their help, assisting Emilie and handing out teacher packets.

And of course... the day would not have been complete without a visit from Clo!
