> Greetings Friends and supporters,
> Thanks to the hard work of all of the wonderful volunteers who  
> helped prepare and run the FoSC first ever native plant sale - it  
> was a whopping success.
> The nursery looked fabulous with it's new soil bin, lumber rack,  
> plant storage tables, Grassland Site trail and parachute. The  
> demonstration garden showed off brilliant color in spite of being  
> recently browsed by our resident deer. Adding to the pleasure of  
> seeing the site, there were informative interpretive signs and  
> wonderful plant descriptions for most of the sale plants as well as  
> a startling photo of the hill behind the shade house when it was  
> still covered with a dense acacia thicket. Also popular with the  
> garden tour folk was the fun and friendly lunch kiosk. And for  
> those auditory learners in the crew there were two very informative  
> talks about propagating native plants for the garden.
> We were visited by over 500 people many of whom were on the  
> Bringing Back The Natives Garden Tour and many others who heard  
> about us through the outreach efforts put in by FoSC volunteers.  
> The result of all of this is that our work is now known by more  
> people and we raised $6,800 to put towards our efforts in restoring  
> the ecological health of the Sausal Creek Watershed.
> Cheers and special thanks to all who lent a helping hand,
