Thank you Betty for this wonderful post about GHF. As the Garden Director, I am one of the very few staff that is lucky to have an army of volunteers to help me maintain the gardens, especially in the organic rose garden. I would also like to thank you for recognizing us as a separate entity from the city run Heather Farm Park as most people think we are a city funded organization.

When I was a year out of active/Reserve Marines I worked at A nursery I Walnut Creek and met a wonderful man whom introduced me to the Landscaping industry but first as a Gardener and later a designer ... His name was Bob Cowden... if ever there was a wonderful community in Walnut Creek and environs it was the Diablo Valley. My time with Bob was extraordinary... he always laughed and the whole time with him in the nurseries was an education in and of itself! Another American Warrior was Vito Bertoldo! A Medal of Honor USA Soldier in Bastongue (sp?)  
He picked me up from the nursery and we worked together as Landscape Contractors (me later) but all of wha I learned about the garden we’re from those two great friends... any time you would like some of Bob or Vitos wonderful learning for a kid getting into this... call me  
I’m in Colfax,CA but grew up in Walnut Creek and never looked back!
