A New Business is Good News

Making my usual rounds through Grass Valley the other day, I noticed some activity on E. Main Street near the round-about. A building, empty for months, had a new fence and gate, and not just a gate, but a work of art. I stopped in and met Kurt Wahi of, the soon to be, Kurt’s Garden. Kurt has been in the landscaping and nursery business for many years and Kurt’s Garden is going to be an opportunity to show off some of Kurt’s rare plants and large specimen trees (Kurt’s Specialty). Kurt hopes to open Kurt’s Garden after the 4thof July.

If you happen to be in the area, welcome Kurt to the neighborhood.
