Growers association to hold annual scholarship fundraiser
By CAMILLIA LANHAM
Every year, the Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association gives out scholarships to graduating high school students or college students who are horticulture majors. The association also grants scholarships to children of parents or guardians employed at a growers association member nursery.
Every year, the association holds an open house event to raise money for those scholarships, and this year’s fundraiser will take place on April 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Edwards Barn, 1095 Pomeroy Road, in Nipomo.
A series of free workshops and demonstrations will be held starting at 10 a.m. Those include small-scale hydroponics and miniature greenhouse kits, the basics of preserving food, and creative salad ideas. Clearwater Nursery, Eufloria Flowers, the San Luis Obispo County Worm Farm, Tally Farms Fresh Harvest, and Arroyo Grande in Bloom will also be on-hand during the event.
Nipomo 4-H is serving breakfast, and Rotary of Nipomo is holding a barbecue.
