The Borrego Art Institute is a nonprofit organization that’s here to inspire and enrich the Borrego Springs community. People come here to experience, create, and enjoy all art forms — from pottery to gardening, painting to photography. Our distinctive campus features the Gallery and the ArtPark gardens as well as an off-campus pottery studio. The BAI is a community resource and gathering place and a major supporter of adult and children’s education, participation and art appreciation. Please join us for classes, workshops, shows, and other events, and become a member. Whether you are an artist, a Borrego Springs resident, a visitor, an art lover, or simply a curious explorer, we look forward to welcoming you!

Seasonal vegetables are available weekly at the ArtPark. The gardens provide bumper crops of squash, onions, salad greens, Swiss chard, herbs, eggplant, peaches, apples, and figs in season.

These super-fresh herbs and veggies are the best deal in town at $5 a bag on Friday mornings.

Our Compost Program: Scraps To Soil! 

Turn your leftover vegetable peelings, bread, coffee grounds, and other kitchen scraps directly into compost that goes back into the Community Gardens. Healthy soil is a major part of growing in a desert environment, and your kitchen scraps help make it possible. Dropping off compostable material at the ArtPark is quick and easy, and volunteers are happy to share more about the compost program next time you stop by the ArtPark.
