Our Mission

Our mission is to promote an understanding and appreciation of how important and all-encompassing agriculture is in our daily lives.
We do this by providing quality educational resources and programs that:

  • Connect students to hands-on agricultural experiences;
  • Help students make informed decisions about their food choices and health;
  • Promote an understanding of the sustainable production of food, fiber, and shelter;
  • Highlight the significance of our local food supply and agricultural heritage.

El Dorado County Ag in the Classroom is a local, grassroots, charitable organization that provides quality agriculture-related educational resources, programs, and training opportunities to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of agriculture in our lives.
El Dorado County residents enjoy many benefits of diverse agricultural operations – farms, orchards, vineyards, timber lands, cattle ranches, olive groves, and many others – that fuel our economy, feed our families, and preserve our beautiful rural landscapes.
Agriculture is part of our daily lives – from the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the homes we live in. Ag in the Classroom provides resources and opportunities for children to gain an appreciation and understanding of the role of agriculture. When students learn about soil, cultivation, food cycles, animals, nutrition, natural resources, and stewardship of the land, they can make informed decisions as consumers and community members as they grow up.
Through programs like Farm Day and Fields of Learning, El Dorado County Ag in the Classroom offers educators, students, and the public opportunities to learn about agriculture in context of local farms, ranches, vineyards, and forests.
Through the hard work of our partners and volunteers, high quality standards-based educational resources and activities are available to educators throughout El Dorado County.

Fregoso Outdoor Foundation
The Foundation was founded in 2010 by Max and Kelly Fregoso to support soldiers, veterans and military families in coping with combat, deployment and adjusting to coming home. Their walk with the Lord and love of the Great Outdoors has provided them with the passion, the partnerships, the people, the vision, the leadership, and the plan to connect soldiers, veterans and military families with the great healing power and natural blessings of nature. The Fregoso Foundation partners expert outdoorsmen and outfitters with the brave men, woman and their families who have sacrificed so much for us and provides them with the opportunity to enjoy the serenity and challenge of outdoor activities. Based on the physical, emotional, and social interests of participants, and recognizing developmental principles, the Fregoso Outdoor Foundation offers diversified activities that help gain self-confidence and self-esteem, re-enforce active lifestyles, increase self-reliance; and adopt constructive new hobbies.
