Help Wanted! Recording Secretary needed for 2017
Chapter Nursery Challenge Grant
Our nursery, the source of a significant portion of Chapter income and many of the California native plants members and others enjoy in their home gardens, is in the midst of a major renovation. We plan to finish the renovation in 2017 and we estimate it will cost $40,000. An anonymous donor has generously offered to match the first $15,000 contributed to help finance this project on a dollar for dollar basis. All donations are tax deductible and must be received by December 31, 2016 to qualify for matching.
