On Tuesday, the Santa Cruz County Fair Board approved the dates for the 2013 County Fair, as well as the establishment of a community garden.
The family friendly fair, located on Highway 152 just east of Watsonville, will stretch from Sept. 10 to 15, 2013.
“We are already in negotiations to bring another round of exciting new attractions to next year’s Fair” interim manager Dave Kegebein reported to the board.
The directors also approved a partnership between the Fairgrounds, Agricultural History Project (AHP) and Mesa Verde Gardens (MVG), which helps low income residents of Santa Cruz County meet basic food and security needs through creation of small organic gardens.
In collaboration with the Fairgrounds and AHP’s Yesterday’s Farm Education Program, MVG will install and manage the garden in the area between the on grounds preschool and Ocean Speedway. The Fairgrounds will donate the land for it.
