VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+
State Senator Carol Liu bestowed a great honor on us last month – small business of the year! She recognized our efforts to save water and educate the public… work you all do with us.
The honor is a great reminder of all you do at our sides, from maintaining the La Canada Public Library’s Gardens of the World to inviting Los Angeles into your gardens to see how lush and vibrant an authentic California landscape can be. Thank you!
We look forward to making even more progress in the years to come.
