“To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” Ghandhi

Welcome to your “go to” place for what is fast becoming a familiar and welcoming resource for community and horticultural information for the entire valley.

We are proud of the fact that the Botanic Garden was built by the community for the community. On a regular basis, ages one to eighty volunteer to weed, plant and mulch the Garden. Join us to get involved and help our garden grow for all to enjoy.


We would not exist without community funding which supports purchasing plant materials, building supplies, on-going maintenance, and our many garden design plans including our future Rain Garden, Basket Weaving Garden, Medicinal garden.

But we are asking that you consider donating any amount of money, large or small, that you feel comfortable pitching-in to be part of the moving force behind The Santa Ynez Botanic Garden which is set aside to nurture us all.
