About

Casa del Herrero. Montecito's only National Historic Landmark, has exquisite gardens and orchards that would benefit fromregular attention from a corps of regular volunteers!

We've primarily established garden volunteer day to be each Friday morning, generally from 9 AM to Noon, when we have a longtime, capable, hard-working, and FUN Volunteer Team Leader to assign projects, answer immediate questions, etc.

Projects often include a learning component and volunteers work under the direction of the Executiave Director and the Volunteer Team Leader, respectively. Activities comprise such things as:

- Pruning dead wood from orchard trees

- mulching composted manure and organic matter

- cultivating seeds, transplanting plants for the gardens

- planning, prepping, and maintaining kitchen & cutting gardens

- thinning agapanthus growth

- & more!
