California Women for Ag

Our Purpose

Giving Tuesday and we are proud to support the California Agricultural Seminar which gives 30 students and five faculty the opportunity to explore the breadth and diversity of California agriculture during a four-day travel course to observe the production, processing, and distribution of California’s agricultural commodities. Students meet weekly throughout the spring semester to investigate the economics, scope, geographical location, general cultural practices and marketing opportunities of California’s top ten commodities. The capstone experience of the class is a tour to a major California agriculture region during which students are able to dig into some of the most challenging issues confronting California producers.

Students who have taken this course in its first two years have described it as “eye-opening,” “life-changing,” and “the highlight of my college experience.
