Farming is a foundational piece of our regional economy and quality of life but it doesn’t happen without a reliable water supply and San Diego County is one of the nation’s top producers of avocados, ornamental trees and shrubs, flowers, succulents, lemons, and other agricultural products,
San Diego County farms cover approximately 250,000 acres and generate $4.8 billion in total annual economic activity. During Water Awareness Month in May, to celebrate safe and reliable water supplies that help sustain the region’s local farms and food production, San Diego County Water Authority is hosting a social media photo contest.
This photo contest offers everyone a chance to showcase their favorite locally grown fruits, vegetables, flowers, and nursery plants, and to win some great weekly prizes donated by sponsors who share our commitment to our region’s most precious natural resource.
Entering the photo contest is easy: Take a photo of your favorite locally grown fruits, vegetables, flowers or nursery plants and post the photo to Instagram or Twitter using #B2UbyH2O between May 1-31. Participants must be at least 18 years old to enter.
