The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club will host the 2nd Annual Rancho Santa Fe Garden Fair & Market on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Rancho Santa Fe Association/Community Center Parking Lot (17022 Avenida de Acacias).

The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Fair & Market celebrates all things horticulture by featuring landscape consulting, plant and garden gifts, irrigation district rebates, horticulture presentations, and fun hands-on activities for kids.

Don’t miss out on a special opportunity to purchase your produce from Dragon Organics, a charitable farm based out of Escondido. Some of the produce available for purchase includes Valencia oranges, watermelon, garlic, basil, onions, carrots, and dry beans. Dragon Organics is part of a collaborative effort between New Alternatives, Inc., San Pasqual Academy, and the YES Program, providing learning opportunities through agricultural literacy, and hands on job skills to San Pasqual Academy’s youth in order to help cultivate independent life skills.

Dragon Organics offers agriculture elective courses, incorporates health and wellness into San Pasqual Academy’s youth residential life, and provides an after-school paid internship program for students. Youth interns work alongside San Pasqual Academy’s grandparents and agricultural employees of Dragon Organics in planting, sustaining, harvesting and selling crops. Dragon Organics promotes small business/ entrepreneurial skills, while helping students set and achieve goals. Support Dragon Organics and purchase your produce at their stand next Saturday!

Parking for the event is available at the RSF School and on surrounding streets. Entrance to the RSF Fair & Market is on Avenida de Acacias at the RSF Association building.

Generous sponsors of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Fair & Market include: Merril Lynch; Rancho Santa Fe Connect, brought to you by Fision, Fiber Optics by Hotwire; San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum; Santa Fe Irrigation District; and Chicweed Patio & Garden.
