The San Joaquin County Office of Education is helping to get the word out about volunteers for the annual AgVenture event for county elementary students.
Each year, third-graders attend an event in their area to learn about food grown there.
Lodi-area students are scheduled to visit the Grape Festival Grounds in March. Groups also visit sites in Manteca and Stockton at other times during the school year.
The group that sponsors AgVenture needs 80 plant, animal and machinery displays, plus 200 volunteers to accomate the 4,000 student participants, according to a flyer.
For more information, or to volunteer, contact Janet Dyk at 209-823-5013 or ssjagventure@ gmail.com.
