We hope that Explore Ecology supporters will come rock out in the vines with us on ."
Nicole Carnevale, Buttonwood's Director of Sales, says, "We love the collaboration. So much of what we do here at Buttonwood revolves around farming, from the peaches in the orchard to the grapes on the vine. This event will help support bringing farming to our local schools and getting kids excited about growing their own food.”
Located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, Buttonwood's 39-acre vineyard is part of a 106-acre property. Planted in 1983, Buttonwood has 33,000 vines. Some of the other crops grown on the ecological farm include olives, pomegranates, peonies, herbs, summer vegetables, and peaches. Most of the growing done at Buttonwood is organic, without the use of synthetic chemicals.
Seyburn Zorthian, Owner and Partner of Buttonwood says. “Next year we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Buttonwood Farm. My mother, Betty Williams founded Buttonwood with the vision of creating a working farm based on good practices for people, animals and the earth. Explore Ecology was a natural fit, they are bringing some of those same ideas to our local schools; bringing kids back to farming and back to creating.”
