IV Love and Remembrance Garden Press Release

ISLA VISTA, CALIFORNIA, MAY 7th, 2015 - Project IV Love, Isla Vista Recreation & Parks
District, UCSB and Woodstocks IV, are proud to announce and welcome the Santa Barbara
community to our Community Planting Day, Saturday May 9th at 10 AM and Garden
Dedication, Saturday May 16th at 2pm. ! !
Last year in the aftermath of the tragic events on May 23rd, UCSB Alumnus and Santa Barbara
local, Jordan Killebrew, created the website Project IV Love to gather funds for a permanent
memorial for the students lost. ! !
Coming up on the one year anniversary, this project has turned into Isla Vista Love &
Remembrance Garden at People’s Park in the heart of Isla Vista. This garden is very special
as five UCSB students of UCSB Professor Kim Yasuda’s IV Open Lab class and Killebrew have
designed benches for each one of the victims. As a part of the healing process we invite
everyone to come plant at our Community Planting Day. There will be planting tutorials by John
Sutar (local landscape artist).This garden will also be the end point of the Candle Light Vigil
happening on May 23 at 7pm.! !
The Isla Vista Love and Remembrance Garden at People’s Park will be dedicated at 2pm on
Saturday, May 16th. We again invite the community to this event to see the culmination of a
years worth of work by our committee and funds gathered from our community. Come honor
and remember the victims, view the finished garden and benches. ! !
The Isla Vista Love and Remembrance Garden at People’s Park is a true community effort
of love spanning from UCSB, Woodstocks IV, IVRPD and community members. The park is a
symbol to honor and remember the victims that were lost but also a focal point to remind us to
never allow the events of May 23, 2014 to never occur again. ! !
Donations towards the longevity of this garden can be given on our website.! !
