As part of this year’s activities for its 8th Annual 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 “The 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. “The Biggest Little Farm” chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature.
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 began in 2008, it has reached over 65,000 elementary school members in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Santa Barbara County Farm Day is held in September. The 2020 Ventura County Farm Day will be held online on November 7 (no in-person farm tours).
The Fairgrounds open at 5:00 p.m. with the documentary at 6:00 p.m. followed by a half hour question and answer period with Chester at 7:30 p.m. Vehicle passes are $35 per car including popcorn and $75 per car including up-close parking and snack boxes filled with popcorn, cookies, chocolate, nuts and fruit.
