    Golfers are invited to spend a gorgeous day on the links to support local agriculture and agriculture education on Monday, June 25 at Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo. The Ventura County Agricultural Day Golf Tournament is presented by Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG), a nonprofit organization that teaches children about the importance of agriculture and the origins of their food.

    “SEEAG programs are always offered at no charge to students and schools,” says Mary Maranville, SEEAG founder and CEO. “Money raised from the golf tournament enables young students to visit a farm, sometimes for the first time, learn how food grows and come away with an appreciation of the hard work that goes into growing the food we eat.”

    Tournament players will enjoy 18 holes of premier golf with a cart, prizes, swag bags, raffle and live auction. A sampling of raffle items includes high-end golf equipment, gift certificate for Café Fiore in Ventura and a farm-to-table gourmet dinner by Chef Jason Collis of Plated Events.
