Southern California Day Trip

5 Jun

The Great Park in Irvine Ca used to be The El Toro U.S. Marine Corps Air Station from 1943 to 1999.  After the based closed in 1999 it became The Great Park. The Great Park  with 160 acres opened in 2007 to the Public.  The City Of Irvine owns the park complete with a Sports Complex,  a Farm and Food lab, with a demonstration garden.  Every Sunday is a Farmers Market offering local produce and edibles from the Farm and Food Lab.  There is also Farmers Market Yoga!

Before it became a Military Base the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro  was one of the largest Lima Bean Fields in North America and today it is back to its original roots with rich soil for farming.
