To our partners in education – we are with you! We know there is a lot on your plates with concerns regarding COVID-19, its impact on the upcoming school year and making sure students continue receiving the excellent education they are used to. As such, we are hitting pause on our Fair Education Program and will resume in 2022. Thank you to everyone who continues to make this great educational program part of your classroom! In lieu of this year’s in-person field trip, please feel free to use our Common Core standard-based curriculum noted below to educate students on Fresno County’s rich agricultural heritage!
