We could not do it without YOU!

Thank You Jackson Family Wines for Volunteering at Miller Woods

The district would like to express a big THANK YOU to Ken Kupperman, Director of Vineyard Operations for Jackson Family Wines, for offering to send his crew to work in our Native Plant Nursery at Miller Woods. The timing was perfect as the district needed help planting their bare root plants into pots for the “grow out” process. Jackson Family Wines owns and operates the Gran Moraine Winery and volunteerism is an integral part of their company mission. And after having the group volunteer for two full days for us, we have to agree with Ken’s assessment. He told us his crew did not consist of good workers, it consists of GREAT workers! That was evident by how much they got done in two days and their dedication to serve their community. Thank you again to everyone who volunteered.
