Staff Report

Buttonwood Farm Winery will hold its annual summer concert, Rockin’ Our Roots — Concert in the Vines, from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, to benefit the nonprofit Explore Ecology.

Two bands, the Molly Ringwald Project and The Reserve, will perform on the stage near the vineyard pond to benefit the environmental education and arts group.

 General admission tickets are $50, which includes a logo GoVino glass, two glasses of wine, and admission to the concert.

Guests can bring a picnic or buy wood-fired pizzas from the Farm to Toast mobile pizza oven. The Farm to Toast program is a collaboration between Explore Ecology and the Santa Barbara Unified School District Food Services.

Farm to Toast teaches students how to plant and grow wheat in school gardens. Students also learn how to use hand mills that grind their wheat into flour, then bake bread that will be served in their school cafeterias.

Buttonwood and Explore Ecology are united by their work in environmental stewardship. Land stewardship methods at Buttonwood Farm include responsible soil management and keeping wildlife areas and corridors intact for greater biodiversity.

Explore Ecology educates more than 38,000 students a year, inspiring them to engage with the natural world, think critically, and experience the value of environmental stewardship.

Tickets are available online at EventBrite or by calling Buttonwood Winery at 805-688-3032. For more information, visit
