The Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association will hold its 17th Annual Open House on Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Association member nurseries throughout Nipomo and Arroyo Grande will open their doors to the general public in efforts to raise money for their scholarship fund. Several growers will offer nursery tours of their facilities, in addition to their highly anticipated local plant and flower sales.
