The Old Sacramento Waterfront Iconic Sign Project is intended to be a community identifier for the city’s original neighborhood and attract visitation and commerce to the historic district for years to come.
The Young Professionals of the Sacramento Rotary picked this project as it aligns with Rotary’s economic and community development area of focus. Many of our members’ place of business is in Old Sacramento, and the area is a destination for all members of our Sacramento community. By creating an iconic sign, we will elevate Old Sacramento, and the small businesses that rely on the visitors to our region.
The importance of supporting one of our most unique clusters of locally owned businesses and the importance of preserving the economic vitality of one of our region’s signature districts cannot be understated.
A Mother’s Day Fundraiser/Benefit on Sweet Mabel’s Farm – an urban flower farm in West Sacramento
Enjoy a morning at Sweet Mabel’s urban flower farm, a locally owned pesticide-free flower farm. Elle, the farm owner, started her flower farming career at an apprenticeship program with Soil Born Farms, and continued there after her program was done. After a few years, she started her own full flower farm in West Sacramento, and today grows flowers for many local events and retail stores, including the Co-Op and Corti Brothers.
On Saturday, May 8th, you will have the opportunity to walk the flower farm with Elle, ask questions, get to know what it takes to be an urban flower farmer, and learn tips and tricks for your own garden. In addition to the farm, we will have live acoustic entertainment from the Rotary Rockers, coffee and pastries donated by Starbucks, and a professional photographer onsite who can take family photos.
Click here to purchase your farm tour tickets, Mother’s Day bouquet, or to make a donation to the YP Project. Get your tickets today before they sell out!
