Farm 2 Table Field Trips

Hello teachers!
Thank you for your interest in our Farm 2 Table field trips that take place inside the Agriculture Discover Center on the Fairgrounds.
The program is designed to educate students K-5th about agriculture and how food comes from the farm and ends up on their table. Each session offers three age-appropriate lessons to students keeping with the theme of the month. Learning is fostered through interactive crafts, games, and activities that will keep students engaged until the end!
  • Our field trips are designed to be 3 rotations. At this time, each individual classroom will be asked to remain together as a “color group” throughout the field trip.
  • In order to keep rotation sizes manageable, we will be limited to 120 students for field trips each day. If you have a group larger than 120 students needing to all visit on the same day, please contact Maria Lucero (mlucero@ecfair.org) to discuss arrangements.
Registration is closed at this time. If you would like to receive emails regarding future dates, please email Maria (mlucero@ecfair.org)
