Pacifica Safe After Fire

Friday, July 19, 2013

We at Pacifica are incredibly grateful for the fire fighters who worked tirelessly this afternoon to contain the fire on our property and surrounding area. Our structures are all safe with no damage because of your efforts. We can not thank you enough. You are true heroes.

In Memory: Bill Kennedy

Bill Kennedy 
Programs like The Caterpillar truly depend on the generously donated time and talents of our volunteers. Everyone at Pacifica Garden and The Caterpillar would like to thank one of our greatest helpers, Bill Kennedy, who passed away last month. Bill was instrumental in making The Caterpillar what it is today. He built tons of circuit boards used in the learning stations, all of the wooden shelves and benches in the new Caterpillar trailer, many bird and bat cages, and countless other projects. We would like to thank Bill for all he did to make science education available to our schools and offer our thoughts and prayers to his family.

Monday, April 29, 2013

If you’ll take a look at the little row of icons just to the right of the Pacifica Garden logo at the top of this page, you’ll notice a new addition: a YouTube button! Pacifica now has its very own YouTube channel! And even better: We have a brand new video to show on it! We’ve been hard at work for the last couple months creating a promotional video designed to explain and celebrate all of the amazing, diverse activities that go on in our organization. That video is now online and ready to view! Add a comment, share it with your friends, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for alerts on future uploads. We have some exciting new videos planned for the rest of the year, so check back often!

Forestfarm on the Radio

Western Life Radio, Utah’s premiere outdoor radio program, recently featured a fascinating interview with Forestfarm‘s Jen Hardin-Tietjen. Jen talks about the origins of Forestfarm, the challenge and opportunities of the move to Pacifica Garden, and the enormous variety of plants available from the nursery. You can hear the interview online here or check out Western Life Radio’s blog entry with links here (The interview begins at about 3:25).

A story about Forestfarm’s donation to Pacifica was also featured on the front page of the Spring 2013 issue of Applegate Valley’s Community Newspaper, Applegater (You can read all the articles from the Spring 2013 issue, including content found only online, here).
