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 $350. 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!
