Pacifica on YouTube
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!
Pacifica on Google+ Local
Pacifica Garden just got a little easier to find! Our new page on Google+ Local will pop up whenever someone looks for us using Google properties such as Search or Maps. We will be updating our page regularly, so be sure to “follow” us for the most up-to-date content. Also, feel free to upload photos from your visits to Pacifica or write a review of your experiences here. We hope to hear from you soon!
Note: We feel this new page will better represent our company and serve our fans. As a result, we will be shutting down our previous Google+ page on Friday, April 12.
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). Remember to check our Press page for more mentions of Pacifica in the news.
New Website for Pacifica Arts Guild
