Enviro Fair
Jun 21 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Join us for the 15th Annual Enviro Fair and Locally-Grown Fest on Saturday, June 21 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM in the San Diego County Fair’s Paddock Area.

Sponsored by Albertsons/Sav-on, the San Diego County Ford Dealers and Think Blue, Enviro Fair will stress the importance of recycling, sustainable living, pollution prevention, conservation, and environmentally-friendly products. Non-profit organizations will be on hand to illustrate ways Fairgoers can take better care of our world.

Think Blue

Fairgoers can learn firsthand about organic and sustainable farming. Buying locally grown produce picked at its peak is the healthiest way to eat fruits and vegetables, plus you can support the local economy at the same time. Chefs and farmers will partner to show you how to prepare some of this produce with free (limited) samples.

Returning this year are local farmers and their Community Supported Agriculture Programs, or CSAs.

Cost: $44.00

Join Chef Jenn, culinary nutritionist and local cooking school teacher, for a farm fresh, organic vegetarian cooking class. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and like many small farms Suzie’s Farm relies on the support of CSA Shareholders to keep the farm moving forward. By being a CSA shareholder, you’ll receive a CSA box bursting with freshly harvested produce, including items grown specifically for you. Come pledge support to local farmers and learn to feed yourself and your family with healthy, delicious, and local produce from Suzie’s Farm. The best part of a CSA box is you never know what your will get (that means no menus in advance), it is a great opportunity learn about some new veggies you may have never thought to try. Come learn about which of Suzie’s Farms CSA’s right for you.

Recipes: Chef Jenn will create a vegetarian meal from start to finish using the produce that was handpicked for the CSA boxes that week.
