• SEEAG Gives Dos Caminos School 5th Graders a Lesson on the Life of Lemons
    Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at

  • Fifth graders from Camarillo’s Dos Caminos School recently took part in a SEEAG (Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture) field trip to Limoneira Company in Santa Paula. The kids learned about the life of a lemon—from its early beginnings as a bud on a tree, through pollination, growth, harvesting and then preparing, packing and delivering to locations in the U.S. and around the world.

    The lesson began in a Limoneira lemon orchard, followed by a tour of the historic 1920s Limoneira lemon packing building and a stop at the visitor’s center where the students learned about Agromin’s Santa Paula compost facility and the benefits of organics to agriculture. The students also got to sample a variety of citrus.

    A wonderful day at the farm thanks to SEEAG and Limoneira!
