Second and third grade students at Snowden Elementary School in Farmersville learned all about citrus this month. Roberta Barton, ANR Community Educator, teamed up with Grilda Gomez, Tulare County CE Nutrition Educator, to visit 125 students in nine classes. Lessons focused on citrus varieties grown at the Lindcove Research and Extension Center and promoted healthy eating and physical activity. Students viewed samples of pummelo, mandarin and citron fruit and then participated in a citrus tasting after a nutrition and exercise session. The presentations were given during National Nutrition Week and to highlight agriculture in the weeks leading up to National Ag Week.
