2013 Imperial County Farm Bureau Historical Calendars
Our 2013 Farm BureauÂ Historical Photo CalendarsÂ are in stock and feature photos of Imperial Countyâ€™s agriculture history.
Plus, proceeds from calendar sales will go towardÂ helping local studentsÂ participate inÂ Farm Smart ag education tours. Imperial County is fortunate enough to be home to Farm Smart, which has offered educational agriculture tours toÂ more than 80,000 local students and winter visitorsÂ since 2002.
Ask anyone whoâ€™s been through the program and they will tell youÂ how much of an impact Farm Smart has. Parents of students whoâ€™ve attended a tour frequently learn from their kids as theyÂ explain ag practicesÂ they see driving through the Valley or sing the praises of a newly discovered vegetable they see in the grocery store.
Virtually every school in the ValleyÂ sends students through the Farm Smart program. However in this era of deep budget cuts, even the cost of busing students to the program is more than many schools can afford.Â Proceeds from the 2013 calendar will help us make sure that no class will turn down an opportunity to take students throughÂ this fantastic programÂ because of the cost.
