The Agricultural Area demonstrates crops that are adapted to the
climate of inland southern California. Interpretive signs explain sustainable
agricultural practices, including irrigation water management, integrated pest management, and the use of a variety of biological controls. Learn practices that sustainable farmers use to build topsoil, control soil erosion, and prevent sediment with attached pollutants from reaching our waterways. Find out how you can use your purchasing power to support sustainable agriculture and local farmers while enjoying foods that are often fresher, more nutritious, tastier and safer. By purchasing locally produced products, we reduce transportation impacts, costs, and fossil fuel use.
