“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
“You know me, I think there ought to be a big old tree right there. And let’s give him a friend. Everybody needs a friend.”
“On the last day of the world I would want to plant a tree.”

About the Garden
The Bucket Brigade Humanitarian Garden is a seven acre public space at Elings Park in Santa Barbara. It is being built by to provide community access to fresh produce, gardening, and garden education while cultivating community engagement and improving access and equity in our city’s community garden program. The Garden is designed to break down barriers to access by creating a space where anyone can enjoy the benefits of organic gardening in an easily-accessible location. Garden volunteers can learn to grow food using regenerative, organic farming practices while actively connecting with neighbors of all ages in an inclusive environment. All fresh produce grown and harvested will be donated to local food-aid organizations to reduce food insecurity.
