About the Soil Shindig

Celebrate one of the world's most amazing precious natural resources, SOIL! You're invited to a day of learning, discovering, creating, connecting, and experiencing the key role soils play in our daily lives.  Family-friendly activities will be offered at both locations, and workshops for all levels of soil enthusiasts.  This year’s event will include workshops, farm tours, kids activities, trail walks, a vendor fair, a food truck, live music, a panel discussion, and a celebratory bonfire. 

This is a family friendly event!

Explore two unique soil-supporting operations -- The Tijuana River Valley (TRV) Community Garden and Wild Willow Farm -- both located in the Tijuana River Valley.
