Plant sales nets $24K for Community Resource Center

Community Resource Center raised $24,000 at its annual Garden Tour & Plant Sale on April 24. More than 400 guests attended.

The private plant sale at Ecke Ranch has become the most popular part of Community Resource Center’s charity tour and is consistently responsible for more than half of the event’s earnings. Despite the sluggish economy, the plant sale alone raised nearly $14,000.

Paul Ecke III, owner and CEO of Ecke Ranch, along with his staff, worked his traditional volunteer shift at the plant sale and was joined by his wife, Julie Hampton, and their daughter, Polly. Lizbeth Ecke and son Matthew also pitched in. The Del Mar-Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary returned to provide volunteer support for the event, which required more than 100 volunteers to help at the sale or at garden stops.
