South County Farm Day returns to Salinas Valley Fairgrounds

Enrichment program teaches hundreds of local youth about ag industry

KING CITY — This year’s South County Farm Day brought about 650 third- and fourth-graders to the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds in King City on Jan. 27.

The South Monterey County students, stemming from Gonzales to King City schools, attended the free educational enrichment program taught by the local agricultural industry.

The annual event, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, gives an opportunity for youth to become familiar with food production and farming.

The Farm Day events are presented by the nonprofit Monterey County Agricultural Education and managed by Candi DePauw, a member of the Hartnell College Governing Board. She thanked Hartnell employees Richard Chapman, Belen Gonzales, Dina Uribe, Valentine Rodriguez and Mostafa Ghous, as well as students, for their huge contribution to the day’s success.
