Experience the beauty and benefits of local land stewardship on a tour of Jalama Canyon Ranch, the White Buffalo Land Trust‘s Center for Regenerative Agriculture. This ranch serves as a living laboratory of regenerative agriculture and showcases climate-appropriate crop systems and holistic livestock management. Jesse Smith, the Director of Land Stewardship, will meet guests at the ranch’s base camp before leading the group on a short walking tour of this stunning property. You will learn about the many ecological sites that make up the ranch’s expansive 1,000 acres, including grasslands, vineyards, woodlands, and riparian creeks. At the end of the tour you will relax at base camp under the trees with light bites and sips of Sandhi Wines.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to access the ranch and gain a hands on understanding of how regenerative agriculture and holistic management can create a more sustainable ranch. To make the most of this experience, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes suitable for uneven terrain and bringing a hat to provide shade from the sun.
A portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Santa Barbara will benefit the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience in partnership with The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.
Jesse Smith is the Director of Land Stewardship and is guiding the development of the Jalama Canyon Ranch as well as working with local and global leaders to broaden and deepen the positive impact of regenerative agriculture on our soil, our health, and our communities. His passion and expertise in agricultural system design and community engagement are a cornerstone of our strategy to achieve a systemic shift towards a regenerative food economy and ecology.
