Green & Blue: A Coastal Celebration

Green & Blue: A Coastal Celebration, is our biggest fundraiser of the year, taking place in the beautiful gardens at Rancho La Patera & Stow House in Goleta, CA. This event brings together around 500 guests from across the tri-county region. At Green & Blue we celebrate the many accomplishments this organization has achieved over our years and raise critical funds to ensure EDC remains strong to protect this region for those who love it now and those who will follow in our footsteps. Green & Blue will have a silent auction packed full of unique items, an exciting live auction, food and beverages, and a short program to honor our Environmental Hero, Patagonia, Inc.
We look forward to celebrating together.

WHEN: June 11, 2023, 2:00-5:30PM

WHERE: Rancho La Patera & Stow House, Goleta

We have a broad range of sponsorship opportunities with various levels of benefits.

EDC offers sliding scale tickets. If you are interested or have any questions please contact Venessa Hutchins by email or phone at 805-963-1622.


EDC is delighted to honor Ventura-based Patagonia for its longstanding commitment and action to protect nature and biodiversity, support thriving communities, and fight the climate crisis. Recently the company’s owners announced they were making Earth their only shareholder, as the latest example of creating a new model for capitalism. As Patagonia says: “We’re in business to save our home planet.”

Patagonia CEO, Ryan Gellert, will accept the award at Green & Blue, followed by an open conversation between Ryan and Leah Stokes, UCSB Professor of Political Science and a leading expert in energy, climate, and environmental politics.
