Buttonwood Farm Winery
CA United States

Every day is Earth Day here at Buttonwood Farm”, states Seyburn Zorthian, Partner of Buttonwood Farm Winery & Vineyard. “We’ve farmed and operated sustainably since before ‘sustainability’ was even a buzz word! April brings a focus to environmental practices and the whole farm concept, so we are pleased to welcome guests to Buttonwood to learn about ecological practices – from the ground up!”

The natural gardens flanking the Buttonwood tasting room patio will be the stage for a number of Earth Month events in April.

The environmental movement and Earth Day itself came about due to the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, and at the forefront of that crusade was a young lawyer named Marc McGinnes. He has just released his new book, In Love with Earth. Testimonies and Heartsongs of an Environmental Elder. On April 13th Marc will read passages from the book, which is packed with the tales of personal connections, surprising collaborations, leaps of faith, and acts of service that constitute the author’s long and successful campaign fighting for the planet he loves. All are invited to join us in the celebration of Earth Month and to hear Marc’s stories about the birth of environmentalism. From 1-4pm.
