L.A. County Fair Fairview Farms

| November 9, 2013 | Reply

L.A. County Fair Fairview Farms has a one-acre gem of a food and teaching garden called Heritage Farm. Kaye dropped into the fair and got a tour of Heritage Farm and the Children’s Farm Market by Don DeLano, chief horticulturalist at the 500 acre Fairplex in Pomona, California. One of the main purposes of the fair has always been agriculture, and educating kids about the food system is a mandate of Fairview Farms.

Get a taste of the fair and have a little fun as Kaye learns about food from a kid’s perspective!
