That's how you thrive: In SLO, we rely on thousands of vineyard and farm workers to plant, care for, and harvest the fruits, vegetables, and wine grapes we are fortunate enough to enjoy. Last month, these men, women, and their families received significant support from the local community when the Central Coast Wine Classic raised $145,700 for the cause. Amazing! Want to learn more about how to show our local farmworker community maximum love? Go to talleyvineyards.com and click the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers link ... Green thumb itching? You need to check out the events happening at the SLO Botanical Garden next month and mark your calendars accordingly! Learn about rare fruits of the Central Coast on Oct. 14 at a workshop that includes tips and a docent led tour of the green growing grounds (see all events at slobg.org). Δ
