Alta Vista Garden Club’s Habitat for Humanity Contributions

The club contributes plants, books and expertise to new “Habitat for Humanity” homeowners. The goal of the Habitat for Humanity Committee is to assist new Habitat homeowners in the planning and selection of landscaping materials for their new home. Since many of the Habitat homeowners have not owned a home before, the planning phase encompasses introduction to gardening in a harsh climate, waterwise and firewise plant selection and what is involved in the maintenance of the selected plants. Funding is provided to purchase the selected materials. Members also provide planting assistance.
