Linette Heydt of Ventura connected with Central Gardens soon after her family moved to the area, because their daughter wanted her wedding in a garden. That was in 2008 before there were any buildings on the sight. (Central Gardens has grown more and more beautiful every year since that day!) She became a board member in 2009, and is a volunteer at heart. She especially enjoys helping with the fundraising events at the Gardens. With her schedule she’s not able to do a lot of the hands-on work in the gardens but is so appreciative and amazed at the many devoted volunteers who help make the gardens so beautiful.
