Just one click and you could help the Garden win up to $10,500 from Safeco Insurance. That’s right—just one click! We are competing in a contest between 33 nonprofits around the United States. We need your help!
All of this is happening because George Petersen Insurance Agency was selected for a Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award due to their longtime support of the Garden donating money, volunteer time and office space. GPIA employees Debbie Bussman and Larney Ford volunteer at the garden and serve on the HBGF Board of Directors. The award includes a $3,000 donation from Safeco Insurance to the Garden and entry into the Make More Happen Contest. The way the online contest works is that the nonprofit that gets the most votes will win an additional $10,000. If the total votes to all 33 nonprofits exceed 28,000 votes, than each of us wins another $500. Each day between now and 10 am Pacific Time on August 17, please go to the following link and cast your vote for the HBGF: www.safeco.com/make-more-happen. We would also appreciate it if you would share our Facebook posts with your network of family and friends. Anyone, living anywhere can vote. Please help us make this happen!
The Humboldt Botanical Garden is a world-class living museum featuring a wide variety of native and exotic plants overlooking Humboldt Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Our 44.5 acre site features over 7 acres of formal gardens, 5 miles of hiking trails and a wide range of educational and recreational opportunities. The Garden is located in southern Eureka adjacent to the College of the Redwoods. Visitors experience an ornamental terrace garden, the largest native plant garden in Northern California, a riparian area, a temperate woodland garden and a 100-foot diameter earth mound that is the only one of its kind in North America. Our facility provides a safe location for the public to recreate, relax, reflect and enjoy nature while inspiring awe and curiosity about life on earth.
