About the event: The Encinitas Spring Street Fair is located down the center of six blocks of scenic South Coast Highway 101, two blocks from the Pacific Ocean.  Ongoing since 1983, international food, children’s rides, four live stages, and the craft brewery beer garden guarantee that there will be fun for the whole family. The emphasis at the Encinitas Spring Street Fair is on arts, handmade crafts, antiques, and imports. 

About volunteering with Solana Center at this event: Volunteers help our staff teach simple solutions on how to divert wasted food from the landfill, reduce harmful greenhouse gases like methane, and build healthy soils that feed our plants and hold water. At this event, you will engage community-members with our worm display, showcase examples of Zero Waste living, and share information on other composting resources available to the public through Solana Center and our sponsors.
