Mary Maranville founded Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture [SEEAG] in 2008. Even with America’s rich agricultural heritage, children don’t make the connection between the acres of farmland around them to the food on their table. This education program helps make that connection. Providing kids with field trips to local farms brings the message home even further.
Since 2008 Mary has provided and connected over 7000 school children with Ag Education and farm field trips. The mission of SEEAG is to increase the understanding of the food journey from field to consumption and to connect school children the farmland their own backyards. This program is teaching kids why they need to care about plants, gardens and agriculture and is inspiring the next generation to become future agricultural managers and stewards of the land.
