Cyclists, Rotary present grant to Sunflower Hill

Donation to be used for nonprofit's Spring planting season

The Pleasanton North Rotary Foundation and Cycling for a Cause have given a $1,000 grant to Sunflower Hill Gardens to purchase garden tools and other equipment needed for its Spring planting season.

The donation was presented by Jerry Pentin, a Pleasanton City Councilman who represented both organizations.

Sunflower Hill is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to create a sustainable residential community for individuals with special needs, similar to senior living.

A key element of its vision is to build an edible garden to provide healthy food, work opportunities, an outdoor learning venue, and revenue generating potential for our future Sunflower Hill community.
