Art From Scrap is one of the leading environmental education organizations in Santa Barbara, California. Each year AFS Green Schools reaches 14,000 children through lessons and field trips covering the topics of Natural Resources, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Compost, Water Quality, and School Gardens.
Art From Scrap provides the community with a Green Schools environmental education program, an Arts Center, and a Reuse retail store.
Green Schools students learn the waste reduction methods of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Compost, pollution prevention actions to improve creek and ocean water quality, and contribute to a sustainable community through organic gardening and service learning projects.
Hands-on art activities and shows at the AFS Gallery encourage the innate creativity of thousands of people each year - proving that each one of us is an artist.
