The San Diego County Fair’s Plant*Grow*Eat program teaches children about agriculture and nutrition.
Teachers of Pre-K through 6th Grade classes throughout San Diego County can sign up their class to participate in this program at no cost.
Here's how the program works:
- Fair staff visit elementary classrooms throughout the county to provide growing materials—including pots, soil, and seeds.
This year, Pre-K through 3rd Grade classes will grow radishes, and 4th through 6th Grade classes will grow green onions.
- Students learn how to plant a seed, help it grow, and eat the veggie or edible flower.
- Students bring their plants to be judged (and tasted!)
- They also visit agricultural areas to learn more about farming and nutrition—and to have a great time at the Fair!
