Our Museum Is Green

Our museum teaches students how one hundred years ago people were reusing, recycling and growing vegetables in their backyard as the customary way of living. Today, our museum does not only teaches, but applies its teachings through our every day green operations including:

  • recycle paper, plastic and aluminum.
  • use our own Blacksmith shop for repairs around the property
  • reuse old lumber and other construction materials
  • installed environmentally-sensitive irrigation systems
  • grow our own fruits and vegetables
  • guard the last surviving fresh water marshes in Santa Ana
  • house a variety of animal and bird life, as more than 4 acres of our property represent one of the last pieces of natural property in Santa Ana
