Message from our President

The 18th  Annual Open House in April proved to be quite a success and as a result we were able to fund 28 scholarships to college bound students; 12 of the students had a relationship with nursery member. Several students have completed their fall registration, submitted proof of enrollment and have received their scholarship award check in the mail. Thank you again to all who gave their time and materials to make our annual fundraising event possible.
 
Below are some photos of the Open House along with a few photos of High School  
scholarship award presentations made by board members last month.

Wishing you a great summer!

The  Central  Coast  Greenhouse Growers Association (CCGGA) was founded to provide a cohesive organization that acts as a good neighbor within the local and regional community, providing information and education to neighbors; other community groups or businesses; and county, state, or federal agencies.
 
The CCGGA acts on behalf of its members in resolving issues that may arise with neighboring communities, as we work to coexist and enjoy the numerous benefits the Central Coast provides for both living and growing high-quality plants.
