Soil Shindig!

November 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Come join us for this Free Community Event for the fifth year in a row!

Celebrate one of the world’s most amazing precious natural resources, SOIL! You’re invited to an afternoon of learning, discovering, creating, connecting, and experiencing the key role soils play in our daily lives.

Explore two unique soil-supporting operations — an educational farm & a community garden — located in the Tijuana Estuary just 15 minutes south of downtown San Diego.

Plenty of family-friendly activities throughout the afternoon!

Bring your leftover Halloween pumpkins to smash and compost!
