Big Day of Giving

You can put a student on a pathway to a career in agriculture. You can help a beginning farmer get started farming. You can change a life.


"It got me excited for the future and things I can pursue.” —FARMS Leadership program student



Big Day of Giving is Sacramento’s 24-hour online giving challenge. For one day each year, non-profits in Sacramento, Placer and Yolo Counties ask their friends and neighbors to celebrate the spirit of giving.

Again this year, the Center for Land-Based Learning is participating and your donation is essential! When you donate, you show that you care about the future of agriculture and want to make a difference in the lives of thousands each year.

  • Youth (18-24) are connected with paid internships and job shadows in agriculture and environmental science based businesses.
  • Future generations of farmers, agricultural leaders and natural resource stewards are creating robust and sustainable agriculture in balance with an ecologically vibrant California.
