Nonprofits Receive RSF Garden Club Grants
Nature Collective, formerly called San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy, was one of 13 nonprofit organizations awarded grants from the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club totaling nearly $100,000 this year. Nature Collective received $5,000 to support habitat restoration with native plants at Harbaugh Seaside Trails.
The grants helped fund initiatives that further the mission of each 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); Mission Estancia Elementary School ($2,136); and Roger Rowe School ($2,206).
