As part of this year’s activities for its all-virtual Ventura County Farm Day, Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) is hosting a drive-in movie night on Sunday, November 1 at the Ventura County Fairgrounds featuring the award-winning, family-friendly documentary “Biggest Little Farm.” The evening includes a question and answer session with John Chester, farmer, cinematographer and co-founder of Moorpark’s Apricot Lane Farms where the documentary was filmed. SEEAG is seeking event sponsors.
Proceeds from the evening will go to SEEAG’s mission to educate students and the public about the farm origins of food and agriculture’s contribution to our nutritional wellbeing. Since it was founded in 2008, SEEAG has reached over 65,000 students and community members with its free agricultural education programming at is annual Ventura County and Santa Barbara County farm days.
Sponsors will receive tickets to screening, gourmet farm-to-film snack boxes (with some items grown on the Apricot Lane Farms), gifts and their logo/name on the screen, the Ventura County Farm Day website and social media. Sponsor levels are $1,000, $2,000 and $5,000. Media sponsorships are available too. For a list of opportunities, go to www.venturacountyfarmday.com/drive-in-sponsor.

Founded in 2008, Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) is a nonprofit organization that aims to help young students understand the origins of their food by bridging the gap between agriculture and consumption through its agricultural education programming. SEEAG’s “The Farm Lab” program based in Ventura County teaches schoolchildren about the origins of their food and the importance of local farmland by providing schools with classroom agricultural education and free field trips to farms. Through this and other SEEAG programs including Farm Day in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, over 65,000 elementary school students and community members in Southern California have increased their understanding of the food journey.
