The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club recently awarded nearly $100,000 in grants to 13 local nonprofit organizations to help fund initiatives that further the mission of the organization. Projects were required to address a community need; be technically and economically feasible; ensure that all those actively involved in the project will benefit from the results; facilitate the transfer of technology, skills, and knowledge to others; and foster self-sufficiency.

North County recipients included: TERI ($11,257); RSF Association Forest Health and Preservation Committee ($10,000); MiraCosta College ($9,500); Carmel Creek Elementary School ($7,500); Coastal Roots Farm ($6,561); The Nature Collective ($5,000); Mission Estancia Elementary School ($2,136); and Roger Rowe School ($2,206). Other recipients included San Pasqual Academy, Hancock Elementary School, Balboa Park Conservatory, Darnall Charter School, and Children’s Discovery Museum.
