Help Kids Enjoy a Growing Adventure at the Fair!
The San Diego County Fair’s Plant*Grow*Eat program
teaches children about agriculture and nutrition. The Don Diego Bus Program enables students from Title 1 elementary schools throughout the San Diego area to participate. For many children, this marks their first time to the Fair; for some, their first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean!
The cost of one bus is approximately $500. We welcome donations in any amount.
Fair staff visit elementary classrooms throughout the county to provide growing materials.
Students learn how to plant a seed, help it grow, and eat the veggie or edible flower.
During the Fair, students bring their plants to be judged and tasted.
They also visit Ag areas to learn more about farming and nutrition -- and to have a great time!
