Booth Education at Western Days Festival and Parade – Valley Center

Help spread the word about compost and sustainability!

 

Divert wasted food from the landfill, 

reduce harmful greenhouse gases like methane,

and build healthy soils that feed our plants and hold water...

by volunteering as a booth educator and inspiring others to compost

Join Solana Center at our interactive booth to teach others about composting and its importance to maintaining a healthy planet. Help others incorporate composting into their daily lives! 

At this event, you will engage community-members with our worm display, showcase our upcoming classes, and share information on other manure management related resources available to the public through Solana Center and our sponsors. 

Established in 1950, Valley Center Western Days is the historic and premiere annual event celebrating Valley Center’s western heritage. Enjoy the festival and parade while giving back to your community through volunteering with Solana Center!
