About AgVenture

San Joaquin County AgVenture is a county-sponsored agriculture and nutrition education program for the third graders in SJC. AgVenture teaches our youngest consumers about the County’s booming agriculture industry and nutrition education through four strategically located AgVenture field days each school year. South county students attend the Fall event in Manteca, central county students attend the Stockton event in January, northern county students attend Lodi AgVenture in March, and Tracy-area students attend the Tracy event in April.


These field days include experiential agriculture learning opportunities. The program is comprised of two parts: presentations and hands-on displays about agriculture and nutrition education. Annually, approximately 10,000 students and hundreds of chaperones benefit from this free program. It is made possible by the support of the SJC County Board of Supervisors, San Joaquin County Agricultural Commissioner's' Office, private sponsors, various grants and over 1,000 volunteers who give of their time and resources to educate participants.

We look forward to giving students "An Adventure in Agriculture."
