Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club Annual Meeting features Ecolife Foundation’s Bill Toone

The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club held its Annual Meeting May 28 at the Garden Club. The event featured guest speaker Bill Toone, whose presentation was titled “Roar of the Monarch Butterfly: A Story of the Magnificent Migration of the Monarch Butterfly, and Its Catastrophic Decline.” Toone is the executive director of the Ecolife Foundation, an organization dedicated to a world in which people and nature prosper together.

In addition to Toone’s presentation, the recipients of the 2015 RSF Garden Club Grant Program were honored in a special ceremony. The grant application process was held April 1-May 1. Local nonprofits and schools were asked to submit a proposal that met the requirements of the club’s mission to promote charitable horticulture and charitable conservation.
