Santa Barbara Permaculture Network joins the Santa Barbara I Madonnari Street Chalk Art Festival 2020 (Online!)

We're excited to sponsor a square in this year's I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival. Always at the Santa Barbara Mission on Memorial Day weekend, this year the event is going virtual! Join us online over the three day holiday weekend as our featured artist Ray Cirino, along with enthusiastic volunteers, creates an Ecosystem Restoration-themed pastel chalk art square, highlighting our favorite ecosystem restoration hero, the beaver!

The fun unfolds Saturday, May 23, continuing to its completion on Monday, May 25. All three days will be available for viewing online. Learn more about the festival and follow the progress of the artists and their projects on the I Madonnari Facebook and Instagram pages.
