It’s Ag Day (Thursday, April 18th) on the campus of Danville Area Community College. Brandy Marron, an Ag Instructor at DACC, says a special guest is going to be speaking at lunch….
The 50-cent lunch represents the amount that farmers usually receive for the products included in the meal.
Marron says this year’s Ag Day will focus more on local career opportunities that are available in agriculture. So, after lunch some sessions which are open to the public will be held in the Mary Miller Complex….
There will also be several ag-related businesses on hand for today’s event in the Mary Miller Complex. And the Ornamental Horticulture/Sustainability program at DACC will also have its plant sale from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. It will take place at the Julius W. Hegeler II Ornamental Horticulture Building.
