Details

Volunteer with Guner Tautrim, sixth generation farmer whose family pioneered Orella Ranch which is a 300 acre ranch on the beautiful Gaviota Coast. Guner's focus is sustaining the farm using "permanent culture" techniques, strengthening the soil and preserving precious water resources.

Today's volunteer work will continue developing a food forest which began in March 2013 with the planting of 100 trees. We will plant passion fruit and goji berries as part of the multi-species food forest. The day will start with a talk by Guner about his vision for agriculture lands on the Gaviota Coast. At the end of our efforts, we will enjoy food and refreshments and learn about how Jack Johnson supports healthy local farming. A pair of tickets for Jack Johnson concert at SB Bowl will be raffled off at the end of the day.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet Guner and help a local land steward make a real difference on the Gaviota Coast.
