Del Mar Fairgrounds 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, CA 92014

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 our upcoming classes, and share information on other composting resources available to the public through Solana Center and our sponsors. Not to mention you will be in the festive environment of the fair! 

Volunteering at this event includes free entry, so you can enjoy the festivities after you volunteer! To see more about this year’s attractions, visit the fair website here
