  • 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!
