Provided funding to expand a nonprofit nursery growing native riparian and wetlands plants from stock indigenous to specific sites and watersheds in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. The nursery also operates environmental education programs in the community. Growing Solutions provided at least $23,000 in matching funds and in-kind services. This included contribution of the nursery site rent-free by the County of Santa Barbara. This native plant nursery benefits coastal wetlands and riparian habitats by providing a source of genetically-appropriate plant stocks for enhancement projects currently being designed.
