Description:

Enjoy a mini 'staycation' at the Santa Barbara Home & Garden Expo, coming August 15th & 16th at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Enjoy a relaxing weekend in your own hometown while experiencing all the benefits of a far-off destination, including home, spa and garden innovations from around the globe! Take time to unwind while tasting Central Coast wines and European chocolates! Admission will be free to survivors of the Tea and Jesusita Fires, as Char-Go Productions continues to focus on sustainable building and remodeling.

All the latest in home building, landscape design, and security systems will be on display. Hundreds of sustainable products and services will focus on home safety, health and the environment. Get all the tools you need to create a backyard garden that is productive, sustainable, and organic. Rare fruit trees, plants and garden supplies will be available for sale.

Cooking demonstrations showcasing waterless cookware will be held both Saturday and Sunday. B&E Vineyards, Bella Cavalli Vineyards, and Buttonwood Farms will offer wine tastings at popular prices for Home Show visitors over the age of 21.

The Community Environmental Council (CEC) is partnering with Char-Go Productions to designate 'green' vendors who sell energy-efficient and environmentally-responsible products and materials. Attendees will learn about local recycling, alternative energy choices like solar, and many eco-friendly and 'green' living options they can incorporate into their rebuilding or remodeling projects. A portion of the admission proceeds will benefit the CEC's goals for a fossil-free Central Coast.
