Craig Torres's Native Garden

Take a 360° virtual tour through Craig Torres’s garden in Santa Ana, California. Craig is a Tongva educator and artist, connecting communities to Tongva history, culture and contemporary issues. He advocates for “indigenizing” public and residential landscapes, restoring relationships with the native plants of each place. Access to ancestral gathering sites is a critical issue for Indigenous people and communities throughout California. Craig has cultivated a native garden at his home as one way to address this, creating medicine and food for community members as he grows the plants that have sustained his “people for thousands of generations.”
