The 16th annual Great AGventure welcomed hundreds of fourth graders from all over San Luis Obispo County to Paso Robles Events Center on Wednesday.

Kids from 22 county schools got a hands-on agricultural experience, learning about farm equipment, animals, crops, and science.

“It kind of gives them a little glimpse of the bountiful agriculture we have in our county,” said Kimberly Bradley, Executive Director of the San Luis Obispo County Agricultural Education Committee.

Students attended various classes about fun agricultural topics for 45 minutes at a time and got to hear presentations from local professionals in the farm industry.

Pleasant Valley Elementary School student Clarah Brown said she was having fun learning about the animals.

“I’ve learned about a pig named Bubba over there and he is a cross. He is very sweet and cute, and it reminds me of my friend’s pig named Bubba,” she explained. “I watched a man and his daughter ride horses around the arena and asked questions about how many horses he has, and he says he has about 30 horses.”

The Great AGventure program is free for local schools.
