SOIL :: SUSTAINABILITY :: SUSTENANCE

Wild Willow Farm & Education Center, Suzie’s Farm, and The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County/Tijuana River Valley Community Garden are teaming up for the second annual SOIL SHINDIG: a day-long event to celebrate healthy soil, sustainability, and food in the Tijuana River Valley Regional Park!

The Soil Shindig will include featured speakers, workshops, demonstrations, great food, farm tours, kids’ activities, a vendor fair, and much more! With 2016 designated the International Year of Pulses (beans, chickpeas, lentils and dry peas), we will also be holding a COOK-OFF with local chefs featuring the star ingredient… pulses! All three sites will host various festivities, and visitors are encouraged to move between sites by bike or foot.

The Tijuana River Valley boasts a vibrant backdrop for both farming and recreational activities. Connected by over 20 miles of trails, you are invited to explore the river valley in this celebration of soil!

“Interpretive Trail Survey” with MarZ: MarZ is an ardent phytophile with a knack for native plants. There is an overwhelming abundance of tenacious and fascinating life forms in the Tijuana River Valley which she seeks to help others discover and enjoy together. On her interpretive walks, the group will explore the ecosystem for living treasures, and participants will discuss and interact with wildlife while taking an easy stroll along the path.

The International Year of Pulses #iyp2016
The 68th UN General Assembly declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses (IYP). An International Year designation provides an unprecedented opportunity to raise awareness and to celebrate the role of beans, chickpeas, lentils and other pulses in feeding the world. Even more importantly, it will be a galvanizing moment to draw together key actors to further the contributions pulses make to health, nutrition, and sustainability. The Year will create a unique opportunity to encourage connections throughout the food chain that would better utilize pulse-based proteins, further global production of pulses, better utilize crop rotations and address the challenges in the trade of pulses.
