The Farm Day Experience for third graders is set to return Feb. 7 to Salinas, Calif.

The nonprofit Monterey County Agricultural Education Inc. offers the educational program, one of three annual events in the county.

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Growers Street Cooling, 1069 Growers St.

The nonprofit relies on about 700 volunteers for these events. For more information, contact Candi Depauw at 831-905-3669 or visit the website.

Presentations to the students on food production will be made by salad processors, fresh produce and wine grape growers, nurseries and cattle ranchers.

All costs, including bus transportation and teacher training, are paid by the nonprofit.

The program reaches about 7,800 third graders and more than 1,500 adults and teachers, according to a news release.
