CCFC_logoIt is with much appreciation that the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden  received a generous grant of $2,000 from the local organization Central Coast Funds for Children (CCFC) on December 17, 2014. The CCFC grant will directly fund outdoor science and arts based children’s education programs by providing class materials and scholarships for at-risk and low income children, effectively doubling the amount of scholarship the Garden offers to the summer Adventure Camp and Garden Fresh Cooking Classes.
