Eco Container and Succulent Garden at the Del Mar Fairgrounds

The Eco Container, a re-purposed shipping container, is Solana Center’s home for year-round educational programming at the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ Infield Farm. Its design naturally inspires and educates visitors about sustainability. The Eco Container demonstrates how to incorporate water-conscious and eco-friendly practices into our daily lives.
