Here's what's growing on

Special guest Loren Nancarrow to visit Harvest EarthFair
Millions of people look for something meaningful to
do for the environment, not just in April on Earth Day, but year-round.
To harvest these good ideas, San Diego Earth Day is launching its first
Harvest EarthFair on September 14, 1996 from 10am to 4pm at the Antique
Gas & Steam Engine Museum at 2040 N Santa Fe Avenue in Vista. After
the event, there will be a Harvest EarthFair Round-up with a special barbecue
and entertainment for the whole family from 6pm to 8pm at the fair site.
Like the annual EarthFair in Balboa Park, the Harvest
EarthFair will feature educational exhibits from environmental groups, demonstrations,
music and entertainment for the whole family. Harvest EarthFair will show
how food choices affect neighborhood environmental and economic health with
natural foods exhibits, cooking demonstrations and organic food samples.
Special guest, Loren Nancarrow, will be autographing
copies of his book, "Dead Snails Leave No Trails," a collection
of home and garden tips from his radio and TV shows.
The Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum hosts popular
annual threshing bees and chili cook-offs. Visitors learn from its many
harvest equipment exhibits how agriculture and agricultural issues have
shaped North County. The Harvest EarthFair will explore these issues and
many others, showing you what you can do to make a difference.
Like all San Diego Earth Day events, the Harvest EarthFair
will be produced entirely by volunteers. More than 200 volunteers will help
set-up, clean-up, make signs, answer phones and separate recyclables.
