Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club Annual Meeting


The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club held its Annual Meeting and Election of Directors and Officers on May 30 at the clubhouse.

Club President Helen DiZio gave the State of the Club Address, and Master Sgt. Ruben Villarreal received the first Veterans Sustainable Agriculture Training scholarship at Archi’s Acres in partnership with MiraCosta College.

After completing the intensive agricultural training program, Villarreal, a 21-year Marine veteran, plans to open an Archi’s Acres, VSAT in San Antonio, Texas, where he will work with severely disabled and amputee veterans on wheelchair-accessible greenhouses.
