Listen: Michele Clark, Executive Director. Yolo Land Trust will hold its 2020 A Day in the Country virtually from 9AM to 3PM on Sunday, September 13.
Starting at 9AM, videos showcasing one of Yolo County’s many treasures will run every hour on the Land Trust’s website at http://theyololandtrust.org/a-virtual-day-in-the-country/
Secretary Karen Ross of the California Department of Food and Agriculture will begin the celebration at 9AM on Sunday, September 13, with a special message.
Gift cards from a different restaurant, winery or brewery will be given away every hour throughout the day. “These gifts support the small local businesses who have been an integral part of our past Day in the Country events,” said Claudia Marie Randall, Development and Communications Coordinator.
The community can show their support for the protection of farmland in Yolo County by making donations online during the Virtual Day in the Country. Checks may also be mailed to P.O. Box 1196, Woodland, California 95776.
Funds raised during the Virtual Day in the Country continue the work started 30 years ago to make certain that food is always grown in Yolo County.
“Now, more than ever, we invite everyone in the community to join us to protect Our Lands, Our Future,” said Michele Clark, Executive Director. “Please save the date - Sunday, September 13, 2020 – and log onto to http://theyololandtrust.org/a-virtual-day-in-the-country/as we virtually celebrate our local farms, ranches, restaurants, wineries, breweries and sponsors who believe farmland is essential to our wellbeing and shared way of life.”
