FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

Summer in Santa Barbara is no different than any other season, as we are fortunate to have nearperfect weather year-round. Having said that, there is still something in the air during these months that just feels different. The days get a little longer, a little lazier, and life seems that much more magical. With Summer Solstice and Old Spanish Days Fiesta parades and parties aplenty, a simmering restaurant and spirit scene, and polo parading through manicured Carpinteria fields every weekend, there are lots of activities to fill your days. While the summers of my youth were filled with endless moments at Hope Ranch Beach (with an internship or two thrown in for good measure), the idea of young adults taking three months off to do nothing is a thing of the past—as evidenced by the stellar set of millennials we profile in our portfolio “Sign of the Times” (page 110). We canvassed the city to showcase these under 30-somethings who are manifesting their time, making waves, creating, and dreaming. If this is the next generation of Santa Barbara, then there’s nothing to worry about. They will go forth in force. Speaking of making a change, singer Jack Johnson (a part-time Santa Barbaran and UCSB alum) seems to use that as his life’s calling, bettering the world one concert at a time. His message is clear—to respect this precious place we live in. With that in mind, he has partnered with the Santa Barbara Bowl for a special local concert with the hope of planting a seed for more global movements. We checked in with this legendary local artist (“Better Together,” page 142) whom we first profiled so many years ago, and we continue to crush on his songs, his message, and his mantra. Photographer, filmmaker, and sponsored surf traveler Trevor Gordon and his wife, illustrator Maddie Gordon, seem to live that principle day in and day out on their boat in the waters of Santa Barbara. With their carbon footprint in check, they have made their life’s passion living off the land and creating art along the way. We hopped aboard and went along for the ride—with a seat at the table of a foraged food feast (think fish off the line and locally sourced vegetables). Along with friend Mary Gonzalez, they have authored a book on small spaces and how to entertain as mindfully (but still chic!) as possible. Have a seat at the table in “A Beautiful Mess” (page 132). And if land is more your thing, you can’t get any more stunning than the waterfront house we profile (“Two If by Sea,” page 122). The modern abode is in sync with its surroundings for summer perfection. And with perfection comes high expectations. On a personal note, my stepfather, Michael Towbes, was as close to perfect as it gets—as a man and as a philanthropist. His passing this spring was a loss to our family and to the community of Santa Barbara as a whole. With his success, he expected to give back and give back big. Having served on numerous nonprofit boards and having donated to thousands of local charities for more than six decades, he helped shape this community for the next generation. Contributing writer Joan Tapper penned a tribute (page 54) for this issue. With the future as a focus of this summer issue, it seems only fitting to give thanks to those who came before us. A full-circle moment full of youth, hope, and sunny days ahead.

CALIFORNIAN LOVE The original 1925 HOTEL CALIFORNIAN on lower State Street had a rocky start as an earthquake jolted the city and building a week after it opened. Over the years, it was repaired, rebuilt, and renamed. It dropped its “n” to Hotel California then brought it back, only to eventually shutter its doors in the mid-1960s. This summer, it returns in full name—with the “n”—and glory. Spanish influences are throughout the 121-room coastal hotel (from $550/ night), which also boasts a rooftop pool, Moroccan-inspired spa, and restaurant where the majority of the ingredients are sourced from the Golden State. A-list designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard steered the interior design, adding ornate tile work and hand-picked art while giving a “sexy cool” vibe to the sapphire-blue spa. “Certainly the original hotel building gave me a direction with its beautiful façade. I researched imagery of the hotel’s interiors in the 1930s and pulled some of the more impressive details into the design and look,” Bullard says. “The Moorish inspiration is really something that’s an undercurrent to the traditional design of Santa Barbara.” 36 State St., Santa Barbara, 805-882-0100.

S.B. MUST DOS Most conveniently situated behind the Hotel Californian, the FUNK ZONE , funkzone.net, is an amazing place to visit. Not only are there really cool restaurants but also the most inviting wine bars and tasting ateliers for local wine growers, providing an incredible array of experiences. Produced and designed locally, RAOUL TEXTILES , 805-899-4947, raoultextiles.com, are beautiful screen-printed linens. Owner Sally McQuillan has a wonderful eye for color, and her fabrics radiate the energy and style that is Santa Barbara. The OLD MISSION SANTA BARBARA , santabarbaramission .org—California’s most important example—is beautiful. The Franciscan monks built it after the devastating earthquake of 1812, and it has stood the test of time magnificently. La Arcada is an historic enclave with beautiful architecture and a charming ambiance. I love handmade and scrumptious chocolates by local purveyor CHOCOLATS DU CALIBRESSAN , 805-568-1313, chococalibressan.com, and LEWIS & CLARK , 805962-6034, for collectibles and local artist exhibits.

Rosing and LCO, headquartered in a nondescript Goleta office park and filled with UC Santa Barbara post-docs, solved a dilemma that astronomers faced for centuries: Telescopes—no matter how large—could only view a narrow, stationary window into the universe.

Brave New World Clockwise from top:

Cofounder and executive director MATT COULTER ; cofounder NATHANIEL CURRAN ; ambassador MIKEY TAYLOR ; ambassador CHARISSA THOMPSON .

When Matt Coulter and his business partner, Nathaniel Curran, watched a loved one get diagnosed with chronic leukemia in 2010, the devastating news was compounded with the fact that she had no insurance or resources as a 24-year-old executive assistant at a surf brand. The initial hospital bill was $125,000, and treatments staggered toward the $10K mark. She needed help. Together, Coulter and Curran started a fund-raiser for their friend, and a light bulb went on to start a foundation in efforts to do the same for others. Two years and countless stacks of paperwork later, Ventura-based THE YOUNG AND BRAVE FOUNDATION was born. Fast-forward five years to 2017, and Coulter has quit his day job as a real estate agent to run the foundation full-time. The mission is to help young people—anyone under 40—fight cancer bravely, with resources, support, and community. While many nonprofits create awareness for cancer, Coulter said he was “baffled from a business standpoint” that there wasn’t an organization doing anything for the end-user and their families on how to move forward. “When something tragic happens, people want to feel loved,” he says. To date, they’ve assisted 117 families with their WARRIOR Profile Project, which builds microsites for families to fund-raise quickly within their community. Unlike other crowd-funding websites, The Young and Brave Foundation has no administrative fees; every penny raised stays within the family—one “warrior” raised $84,000 in 12 hours. Knowing not every patient has the same sphere of influence, the founders and their team of ambassadors—which includes Extra host Charissa Thompson, skateboarder Mikey Taylor, and quarterback Russell Wilson—help with outreach. Relying on technology and social media, Coulter says they’ve raised nearly $1.5 million on a working budget of less than $100,000. Perhaps as valuable as the financials is their #LoveBeatsCancer program where people all over the world post their stories and diagnoses with the ability to message each other and lean on this greater, brave community. “We’ve turned into a global organization,” Coulter says, “but everything is about community.” J .

1929-2017 There are many ways to give back. Some generous people choose to fund great buildings and leave their name on physical monuments. Others find ways to make their contributions ripple ever outward, so that their good works not only provide immediate aid and sustenance but also teach and inspire others to do the same, embedding philanthropy into the very DNA of a community. Michael Towbes, who passed away on April 13, was that kind of visionary. An engineer with degrees from Princeton University and MIT, he became a builder and a banker and embarked on a lifetime of giving that began with active volunteerism and went on to embrace major contributions to medical research and education, social service and the arts. “He was humble and shy,” says his widow, Anne, “but he hoped to be a model to others. That’s why he wanted to make his philanthropy public.” Indeed, Michael seemed to exert a presence on the Santa Barbara area from the moment he and his first wife, Gail—who died in 1996 after a two-decade struggle with multiple sclerosis—moved here in the late 1950s. At first, when they didn’t have the resources to write a check, remembers his daughter Carrie, “they gave their time instead.” Later in 1980, he and Gail were able to establish The Towbes Foundation with an initial donation of $500. Now, the foundation contributes more than $900,000 annually to 300-plus organizations. “It’s the breadth of his impact that is so significant,” says Sheridah Gerard, president of The Towbes Foundation. “He didn’t give to be flashy or get accolades,” adds Carrie. “He gave to give opportunities to others.” He had the foundation hire a consultant to work with nonprofits to identify their goals, better measure their accomplishments, and then convey those achievements to the community and other future funders. And to teach young people the critical connections between knowledge of economics, entrepreneurial skills, and leadership, he funded promising Santa Barbara students to attend programs at the Davis-based Foundation for Teaching Economics. Michael incorporated his philosophy of philanthropy into his professional life. His construction and real estate partnerships, under what became The Towbes Group, not only developed more than 6,000 residential units in the tri-counties but also began the Give Where You Live program and Towbes Grants.

What’s Now And as one of the founders and eventual sole shareholder of Montecito Bank & Trust, he began that institution’s Community Dividends and Anniversary Grants, which, with other donations and scholarships, has given more than $1.3 million each year to local nonprofits for more than 14 years. “One of the most extraordinary things about Michael Towbes was his clarity of purpose,” says Janet Garufis, MB&T’s chairman and CEO. “His philosophy for the bank and for our philanthropy were one—steady, sure, measured, consistent. Support those who support you. Be a model for others.” Michael served on the Cottage Health Board of Directors for nearly three decades, notes Cottage Health president and CEO Ron Werft, “with the singular goal of leaving Santa Barbara a better place.” Generous, inquisitive, innovative, and endowed with a great sense of humor, Michael cochaired a campaign to build a new hospital that led to “an unprecedented $110 million raised in our community, and a legacy that will contribute to the lives and health of others for generations to come.” Michael served on and chaired countless other boards, among them the Santa Barbara Foundation, Montecito

Union School, Laguna Blanca School, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, the UCSB Economic Forecast Project, the Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara, the UCSB Foundation, the Foundation for Santa Barbara City College, Ganna Walska Lotusland, and the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. “He had razor-sharp focus; amazing energy, passion, and compassion; and high standards of excellence,” says Sheridah Gerard, adding that the work of The Towbes Foundation will continue under Carrie Towbes’s direction. “He challenged his peers to do more.” Along with a team of other major donors, Michael and Anne were instrumental in restoring the historic Granada Theatre, which is now at the core of the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts. It was one of his favorite places in town, says Anne, along with the Riviera Campus and the residence hall at UCSB’s Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics. “He was always encouraging others,” she adds. “And he had a lot of ‘Towbes-isms.’ He said, ‘I’m doing my best to do the right thing, even when no one is looking.’” Of course, all of Santa Barbara noticed.

When BELLE COHEN enters a room, you know the party has started. The petite, passionate, couture-clad philanthropist wears her spirit on her sleeve with joie de vivre. Born into the arts and antiques world of bon vivant parents in New York, Cohen caught a magic carpet ride to Santa Barbara as a young child, became a bicoastal Southern belle in North and South Carolina, and recently returned to set down roots with her own family. “For me, it's a personal calling,” she says. “My mother moved us from Manhattan to Montecito because she had a dream it was Out of Africa. As a child, I really believed we were moving to Africa. Instead, we landed on Cold Spring Road near our very own fantasy land—Lotusland.” Now, Cohen is honoring this iconic sanctuary by chairing Avant Garden with design house Valentino on July 29.

is beyond inspiration. She calls herself ‘the enemy of the average’ in her 1943 book, Always Room at the Top. This inspires me to no end. Instead of trying to fit in—as we so often do—she had the courage to step out of the box and be herself. Part of that self was an admitted seeker. She studied spirituality as she also lived a glamorous life. She was passionate for fashion, jewelry, and music; was an opera singer; had six husbands; and inevitably fell in love with the garden. I love to live each moment to the fullest. Beauty, truth, art—all take us deeper.”

Downton skipped the pond to California in April to celebrate a one-year exhibition of his Icon series at Minotti Los Angeles and Mass Beverly showrooms, and then of course, why not skip a little further up the coast to our paradise? “I loved my visit to Montecito. It felt as though time had stood still—in a good way,” Downton recalls of his garden luncheon Hollye Jacobs and Alice Ryan Miller cohosted. “A different pace, courtesy from another age, and yet vibrant company.

WEAR Sandals, pumps, and booties run the gamut with Perry’s artistic canvas—think Lucite and vinyl mixed with metallic markings, popping primary colors, stars and cloud prints, and gold bling with a nod to ’90s street cred.

At last, ORANGETHEORY FITNESS has opened in Santa

Barbara. In this super popular high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, participants engage in trainer-led group interval training—think one hour of running, strength training, and rowing. What makes this different from other HIIT workouts is that it’s the first to use heart-rate monitors that display your heart rate on a screen on the wall— motivating you to push a little harder. “Science proves that 12-plus minutes of exercising in the specific zone of 85 to 92 percent of your maximum heart rate (what we call the orange zone) produces a tremendous metabolic increase—an average of 900 calories burned per workout,” says studio owner Brandon Cox. Each class of 28 is split into groups, which creates an energetic, dynamic setting. “At Orangetheory, we are a fitness-minded community,” says studio manager Charlotte Mooney. “We support each other through challenges and celebrate our victories.” 5700

The new coffee-table book that’s making waves showcases surfers at home from east to west. In SURF SHACK: LAID-BACK LIVING BY THE WATER (Clarkson Potter, $35, Kendall Conrad, 805-886-8344, kendallconraddesign.com) not all the “shacks” are directly on the water—there’s even a spotlight on Ojai in “Desert Homestead”—but they all depict what the author calls “ease over elegance.” Nina Freudenberger traveled to 18 cities and four countries, documenting flip-flop wearing, board-carrying folks and the dwellings that echo their happy and relaxed lifestyles. For them, she found surfing to be much more than a recreational activity, but “a calling, a way of life that washed through every other aspect of their world.” Flip the pages for countless design inspiration—from rustic tabletops to relaxed living rooms, creative, colorful kid spaces to dreamy, nap-ready backyards. Each abode and the uncomplicated, unplugged lifestyle that goes with it is bound to take the blood pressure down a notch. J E N N I F E R B L A I S E K R A M E R

ONE TO WATCH

When ceramic sculptor Lisa Crane moved from Miami to Mission Canyon, she asked her realtor for advice on an interior designer and was quickly introduced to LAUREN CHRISTINE HENNO . The 28-year-old grew up with a designer mom (Debra Lynn Henno), studied art and architecture in Italy, and interned with Timothy Corrigan. When she decided to go out on her own, she mixed her eye for interiors with a business marketing degree from the University of San Diego and began pounding the pavement, getting her portfolio in front of real estate agents and architects alike. It worked, and Crane hired her to transform a dark, 1900 Craftsman into a breezy artist’s retreat.

“My initial objective was to make the petite one-bedroom floor plan appear larger by feeling light and open,” says Henno. She painted the walls and brick fireplace white and bleached the original hardwood floors to a light, wheat hue. Aiming for elegant yet eclectic interiors, Henno layered lanterns and blended soft linens and colors for a casual, comfortable Santa Barbara feel, sourcing nearly everything from local shops and craftsmen. Outside, she extended the home’s charm, steering 7 Day Nursery to make it “look like a ballet dance, where the entirety of it flows, and feels feminine, organic, and dreamlike.” 805-698-3523. J . B .

Having moved to Ojai five years ago, restaurateur Spoon Singh recently opened OJAI HARVEST to celebrate what he calls “a community of extraordinary people and amazing local farms”, adding, “we are presently in partnership with more than 10 local fruit, vegetable, and beef suppliers” that comprise the menu of items such as farm-to-table sandwiches, salads, meats, pasta and more. The boho publike eatery came together under the vision of local creatives Channon and Bianca Roe. “Paying homage to an older period of Ojai, we incorporated rustic elements, many of which are sourced locally from the valley,” says Channon of the adobe feel of the space. “It was important from the beginning to honor the diversity of the local community and unify that under one roof.” Adds Singh: “Our goal is to create a gathering place to not only enjoy community but to honor the land and its abundance.” 307 E.

Refined Ranch

Located inside Fess Parker’s Wine Country Inn, THE BEAR AND STAR is a longtime culmination of Eli and Ashley Parker’s heritage in winemaking, ranching, and hospitality in the Santa Ynez Valley along with chef John Cox’s passion for pulling it all together under one roof. The “refined ranch cuisine” menu includes items such as deviled ranch eggs with smoke guajillo chili and bacon ($4); a Parker Ranch chile with cheddar, chives, and cornbread crouton ($10); local quail with farro risotto, bay laurel, and red wine demi-glace ($22); and cast iron Wagyu tri-tip ($32). “This is not a restaurant that happened overnight; it’s a concept deeply rooted in my family’s culinary traditions as well as the Parkers’ own family recipes,” says Cox, who formerly helmed the kitchen at the Post Ranch Inn. “Some of the most important elements of the farm and restaurant—such as the herd of Wagyu cattle and the Parker Family Vineyard—have been in the works for well over a decade.” Libations include Parker family vintages in addition to farm-fresh seasonal cocktails. Adds Cox: “The Bear and Star brings together the rich culinary ecosystem the Parker family has created, providing a venue where guests can enjoy a true taste of the Santa Ynez Valley.” 2860 Grand

Focused on FIBE R

In the annals of fiber art, CAROL SHAW-SUTTON is a rock star. Her elegant textile sculptures have been exhibited and collected by museums worldwide since the late 1970s. “I see textiles as a tissue that connects histories and cultures,” says Shaw-Sutton, who headed the Fiber Program at California State University, Long Beach for more than three decades before relocating to the artistic enclave of Ojai. Demand for her work has never waned, as evidenced by her presence in a recent show at Connecticut’s venerable browngrotta arts gallery and, closer to home, a group fiber arts exhibition at Ventura’s Vita Art Center from June 2 through 30. Catch her locally—she also teaches classes at Ojai’s Cattywampus Crafts. L . D . P O R T E R C AR O L SH AWSU T T O N .CO M

“I grew up interested in culture and people,” says Santa Barbara photographer NELL CAMPBELL summing up her 40-plus years (thus far) spent documenting the world around her. A self-described “participant observer,” Campbell has chronicled family, friends, New Orleans Mardi Gras festivities, California migrant workers, urban and rural Cuba, Louisiana hunters, and decades of political demonstrations. This summer offers two opportunities to view Campbell’s work. UC Santa Barbara’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum, 805-893-2951, museum.ucsb.edu, unveils “Nell Campbell: About Face” from July 8 through August 20, focusing on 25 of Campbell’s most compelling images curated by assistant director/curator Elyse A. Gonzales. “Nell brings a unique humanity and intimacy to her portraits,” says Gonzales, who believes Campbell deserves “much more widespread recognition.” The Channing Peake Gallery at the Santa Barbara RELATED EVENTS County Office of Arts and Culture, 805-568-3990, is mounting “Bearing Witness: The Photography of Nell JULY 6, 5-7 PM Opening at Campbell” from July 6 through December 1.

“Delicate, but not fragile,” says ceramicist SANDRA TORRES about the porcelain wares she creates in her Ojai atelier. Using a slip casting technique with specially designed molds, Torres fires each piece multiple times, leaving the outside unglazed to act as a pristine matte canvas for her minimalist hand-drawn decorations. The sublime result reflects Torres’s background in architecture and her admiration for industrial design. Born and raised in Mexico City—where her ceramic education began—Torres journeyed to China, Hungary, and Belgium to study techniques from renowned masters. Her work has been widely exhibited, most recently in a solo show at Denver’s Plinth Gallery. Torres is giving a smART Talk on July 26 at 6 pm at MCA Santa Barbara, 805-966-5373, mcasantabarbara.org.

Says contemporary choreographer Kate Weare about her month-long DANCEworks residency that begins in August and culminates with Lobero Theatre performances on September 1 and 2, “We’ll venture into the dark of the theater and bring our discoveries to the light of performance.” The Brooklyn-based Weare, who helms the Kate Weare Company, has received numerous awards for her work, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014. For her DANCEworks residency, Weare is collaborating with Union Tanguera, a French/Argentinean contemporary tango company. She says, “I’m thrilled to plumb the formal strengths and fascinating differences of these two disciplines— tango and contemporary dance.” (On August 11, 18, and 26, donors of $100 or more are invited to watch the company rehearse followed by a reception with the dancers.)

Buen Camino

Getaway

Lifestyle author and blogger Hollye Jacobs his the trail in need of an aha moment

As a lapsed churchgoer, the thought of doing—what I assumed was—a religious pilgrimage was hardly bucket list worthy. However, as a 40-something-year-old woman feeling stuck in life when the CAMINO DE SANTIAGO called, I answered. The “Camino”—also known as The Way of St. James—is a sacred route that dates to pre-Christian times. Its popularity has ballooned in the last 25 years; more than 200,000 people from all over the world walk the Camino each year. People do the Camino de Santiago for myriad reasons, including but not limited to exercise, adventure, personal challenge, spiritual transformation, and plain old curiosity. While there are a bazillion ways to do the Camino—short trips or long, in a group or alone, sleeping in pilgrims-only hostels or hotels— there is no one “right” way. There is simply your way. The journey itself is the goal and the destination. One of the most joyous parts of the trip was getting stamps in the different cafes, churches, restaurants, shops, and hotels along the route. My pilgrim’s passport—also known as a credential—is my most treasured possession from the trip as it is a documentation and joyous memento of all the places visited. The Camino gave me multiple gifts, beginning with delivering not what I thought I wanted, but what I needed: a newfound spiritual fitness and the awareness of the unrealized potential in me. H O L L Y E J A C O B S

S A N TA B A R B A R A

“It is said that the real Camino happens after the trail, that there is life before the Camino and life after.” What to Pack

Hiking shoes or trail runners Smartwool padded socks and T-shirts Long pants and shorts CamelBak backpack Hat, sunscreen, sunglasses Foot Kinetics HikeGoo Blister Prevention Cream

What to Do

Go with an open heart and mind. Break in your shoes before the trip. Buy souvenirs that speak to you along the way because you may not see them again. If you see an opportunity for a massage, take it. Attend the celebratory Pilgrim’s Mass on Friday evening in Santiago de Compostela to witness the Botafumeiro ritual that has been taking place since the 12th century.

Mother-daughter interior design duo Jodi and Ally Fleming had worked on the family’s initial place—a shingled Cape Cod—and gave this unique neighboring contemporary home a heavy remodel with fresh interiors entirely inspired by the California coast. “Our clients wanted this to feel separate and individual from their primary home but still maintain a cohesive feel,” says Ally Fleming of Newport Beachbased Jodi Fleming Design. “The decks are connected from house to house, so friends and family can go back and forth, but distinct and individualized with their furnishings and designs.” Ally and her mom, Jodi, incorporated the same soft neutrals and beachy elements from the main home into this more modern, light-filled, boxy abode. Serenity and geometry went hand in hand as they worked a remodel using the architecture’s distinctive, crisp, minimalistic lines, keeping the eye mostly focused toward the window so the interiors blend right into the surroundings. Capturing the natural light was an important part of the design process, ensuring the view always remained the main focal point as each room faces the water.

TWO IF BY SEA

“The beauty of reclaimed wood is that it ages with

it becomes more beautiful and gains more character.” the environment;

A subdued palette of blues, greens, creams, and grays kept all hues—from tiles to textiles—the same as what’s found in the sea and shore. In the kitchen, Sea Pearl quartzite was used to mimic the water, while racked Carrara marble tiles on the backsplash give the effect of sand. These material nods are all through the home to “reflect the ocean milieu.” The tranquil master bedroom also plays off the environmental elements—a giant window acts as the primary “artwork.” In the narrow master bathroom, the team installed a skylight to brighten up the space and created a tub/shower wet room, which doubles as a steam room to give the homeowners and their guests a spalike sanctuary feel. Angular design is cohesive throughout—from the back deck to the inner staircase. “We wanted a geometric architectural feature and tried to keep that consistent through the whole design,” says Jodi, who sourced a custom light fixture for this space from Linden Rose in Corona del Mar, knowing it’d be viewed from many angles. The Jenga-like front facade is done in reclaimed wood. “Since they are right on the ocean, it was important for us to use raw environmental materials that will weather with the outside elements rather than fight them,” says Ally. “The beauty of the reclaimed wood is that it ages with the environment; it becomes more beautiful and gains more character as it ages.” While the curb appeal is high, it’s the back deck that gives the home real heart. The backside of the house opens with large bifold doors for a true slice of ultimate indoor-outdoor living. The patio is filled with cushy yet gridlike oceanfront sitting areas and geometric pillows, picking up on the linear theme. Plus, guests can always walk right over to the adjacent deck, giving these fraternal twin beach houses double the fun. ●

Newlyweds Trevor and Maddie Gordon, a photographer and illustrator respectively, skipped a starter house for life on the water. Their home is a skinny, 36-foot sailboat called Brisa (Portuguese for breeze), which they frequently take out fishing and return to the harbor for sunset dockside dinner parties. One of their frequent guests and closest pals is Mary Gonzalez, who used to work at the vegan bakery Baby Cakes in Los Angeles (she even made the Gordons’ wedding cake), and upon moving to Santa Barbara, traded the kitchen for

farming. Now, her home is a red-striped 1970s Prowler trailer, parked on a Carpinteria mountaintop, where she manages a 22-acre avocado farm. Since the trio shares a love of food and unconventional living, it made perfect sense to collaborate on their two favorite subjects in an upcoming self-published cookbook, The Tiny Mess, due out this summer. “We have a similar style of cooking and hosting in our small dwellings,” says Gonzalez, who created dozens of recipes for the book including Accidental Watermelon Poke, inspired by her own outdoor kitchen and overflowing garden full of organic veggies and saucer-sized sunflowers. “The kitchen reminds me of farming—there’s a hustle, movement, and flow to it all. But I prefer being outside on the plant’s time, there’s a spiritual connection there.” In creating the book, Gonzalez was lucky to network with several people at the farmers market where she works twice a week. “I met so many people doing the same thing as me, living in vans or yurts—most of them living illegally!” she laughs. Between real life stories and social media outreach, she and the Gordons traveled up the West Coast all the way into British Columbia, cataloging off-the-grid cooking spaces, including a converted school bus, water tower, and adobe dome. The range of personal stories and regional recipes are unique (think stewed rabbit tacos, nopal cactus salad, and abalone meatballs), reflecting the people behind the pages.

“You don’t need all this crazy equipment to

create something good.” “This book is about real kitchens and real food. It’s grubby and messy and amazing at the same time,” says Maddie. Every shoot was done with minimal styling to feel authentic, accessible, and achievable. At home on the boat, the Gordons know all about getting creative in limited quarters. This means cluttered countertops, makeshift strainers, and rum bottles in lieu of rolling pins. “When you live in a small place, you don’t have specialized items. You have things that serve multiple purposes.” Mason jars, however cliché they’ve become, are crucial and work overtime on the sailboat for storing kimchee, serving cocktails, and baking cupcakes (the recipe is in the book). Rather than stockpiling plastic, which the couple generally avoids, they opt for one set of the real stuff. “We just use china and then I break it all,”

laughs Maddie. “Now we have a pile of superglued bowls,” adds Trevor. Since he was a kid, Trevor’s family has sailed to Catalina for two weeks, and now he continues the tradition with his wife. “Usually we’ll catch a fish like a big bonito that no one else would eat,” he says. Big on entertaining, the couple is known to have dinner parties that overflow onto the dock. Using a rail-mounted barbecue on the back of the boat, they’ll smoke a fish that’s been marinated for hours—the only time they use a lot of sugar—and serve it with style and grace. Healthy hacks and storage solutions are what the book’s all about. Vowing nearly anything can be done with a sharp knife, Maddie says the one thing she couldn’t live without is her small Vitamix, which is in constant rotation for sauces and smoothies and then stored away in a bag underneath the counter along with all the dry goods. The Gordons’ refrigerator is a small box that pulls out of the counter—Gonzalez’s lives outside the trailer on a pallet—keeping them focused on eating fresh. Be it homemade pasta, overnight vinegar-soaked potatoes, or mackerel empanadas, the authors find exotic, inventive ways to cook beautifully, no matter the square footage. “I hope the book speaks to people and inspires them to seek a more minimalist lifestyle,” Gonzalez says. “You don’t need all this crazy equipment to create something good and good for you.” ●

Jack Johnson and the Santa Barbara Bowl make waves on thinking green

BETTER TOGETHER

Last summer, Jack Johnson had an epiphany at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Not on stage, but while sitting within the audience and checking out the cups. Among the partiers and the plastic was a healthy handful of stainless-steel vessels, raised in the air, reflecting the #MyPintAndMe project he launched with the Bowl in 2014—allowing concertgoers who purchase a pint to receive discounted refills for life, eliminating more than 10,000 single-use cups to date. “It was really cool, I saw people sitting there holding their reusable pints,” Johnson recalls, when an idea to take the concept one step further popped into his mind. This summer, the artist is gifting a souvenir cup to each person in the audience at his July 17 and 18 shows at the Bowl, where he’s an honorary board member. Call it generous, call it eco-conscious, call it clever marketing, but those pints are the reason this singer/songwriter/ surfer still takes the stage.

Feature - Johnson Johnson, who frequents ocean-loving communities, talks to fans on ways to get involved with GREENING PRACTICES — from beach clean-ups to rethinking the common cup. This summer, his fans will all receive free, reusable pints at the Bowl.

“Artists like Jack Johnson, Radiohead, and Incubus—they only want green venues. We’ve been called the

greenest venue in the country.” —ERIC SHIFLETT


Feature - Johnson

“At a certain point, I really wondered if I should go back on tour,” he confesses. “I love playing music, I love writing music and sharing it, but one of the things that really brought me back out was all the different nonprofit groups we work with. The tour became a fun way to expand on our reusable pint program. If I can have an influence on the industry I’m a part of—even if only a few venues do it—that makes it worth it. Plus 75 to 80 percent of the time, they keep it going.” No venue was more receptive to his ideas than the Bowl, which sits on 17 acres of natural preserve. Since 1994, the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation has spent $40

million to update the 1936 infrastructure that executive director Rick Boller says was so outdated “a hairdryer could’ve set off the whole system.” After massive facility and energy upgrades that spanned 20 years, the Bowl transformed itself into an exemplary, eco-friendly site with solar panels, low-wattage LED lights, and drought-tolerant landscaping. “Artists like Jack Johnson, Radiohead, and Incubus—they only want green venues. We’ve been called the greenest venue in the country,” says Eric Shiflett, the Bowl’s program director. Since launching the pint program, other music locales have reached out for advice on how to implement such eco-friendly initiatives. Their Greening the Bowl mission is an ongoing event. Each night after a show, workers sort through every piece of trash. This diverts 94 percent of items from the landfill, and their constant auditing has led to more ways for eliminating single-use items. For example, the nightly pile-up of cardboard Rusty’s Pizza boxes was making the team crazy. Last year, they took one last look at the compost bin and called the company to come up with

of the land.”

a better solution—such as skipping the boxes entirely. Now a custom container transports the pies to the venue and individual metal sheets slide directly into the warmers until they’re returned to the pizza parlor. No more mountains of cardboard, and Rusty’s saves more than $1 per pizza box. Little changes, such as swapping countless wine bottles for keg wine, installing a water-filling station, using waterless urinals, and alternative transportation— Shiflett calls their bike valet “the best parking in the house”—all add up to a smaller carbon footprint. And in 2015, Jack Johnson honored the Bowl with the All at Once Sustainability Award. “We have a deep partnership with Jack,” Shiflett says in respect to the ease and lack of red tape they both find in calling each other directly with shared enthusiasm to evolve each other’s ideas. “We talk a lot—what the changes are, what the influences are… changing behaviors is really what we’re doing.” As an eco-minded touring musician, Johnson travels with biodiesel trucks (a tip from Willie Nelson) and has catering sourced with local agriculture wherever he goes. Even his Los Angeles recording studio, Brushfire Records, is insulated with cotton from old blue jeans. The UC Santa Barbara grad visits his alma mater frequently, where he and Kim, his college sweetheart-turned-wife, recently installed the Edible Campus gardening program. Educating youth is just another way the couple is in harmony with the Bowl, which donates $1 of every ticket to education outreach and has created its own instrument fund for kids. Johnson says he feels he’s an environmentalist first and a musician second, admitting the songwriting comes fairly easily to him. “Anytime I try to overthink it or get serious, nothing comes. It’s only when I’m living life and experiencing things—that’s when it comes.” Fortunately, he’s been able to do both. Recently the ocean enthusiast scored the 2017 documentary The Smog of the Sea, which debuts his new song, “Fragments.” And the stage has truly become his platform where he entertains with his breezy, easygoing songs while shining a light on activism and local nonprofits, with hopes to get young people involved in anything from the Surfrider Foundation to local beach cleanups to, perhaps, cutting plastic out of their daily routine. “The Santa Barbara Bowl is definitely at the forefront,” Johnson says of the place where he’s just as happy sitting in the crowd drinking a beer as he is playing. “It’s not just because of the hometown thing, it really is the most beautiful venue in the world.” ●

Dust off your Mexican blankets and get ready to lay out at the Santa Barbara mission for the OLD SPANISH DAYS FIESTA kickoff, La Fiesta Pequeña, on August 2. Let the kids experience mariachi music and horseback riders while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. La Fiesta Pequeña (“Little Fiesta”) has been bringing the Santa Barbara community to the mission since 1927. The festival includes historical programming, traditional song and dance, Mexican folklore, an appearance from St. Barbara, and a special performance by the 2017 Spirit of Fiesta. Watch the sun set behind the Santa Ynez Mountains as you immerse yourself in Franciscan hospitality. F I O N A M O R I A R T Y - M C L A U G H L I N O L D SPAN ISH D AY S-F IESTA. O R G
