President's Message | JULY 2015

Changing to Stay the Same

“The Drought” has forced us to change how we do things; shorter showers, carrying sloshing buckets of water through the house, watering only 2 days a week, getting rid of our grass, planting native flowers. As DIG looks to the future, we need to find ways that will keep us going. We are looking at different plants to propagate for our plant sale, which could change when and how we do our propagation. The 7,000-9,000 plants we grew in the past may need to reduce to 4,000-5,000 plants in the future.


What we don’t want to change is our commitment to giving back to our community. While change is often a challenge, I think we can find ways to keep doing the things we like. If you have ideas, let me know.
