Lauri Rawlins-Betta and Leah Irons, of the Greenville Resource Center, attended the Indian Valley Recreation and Parks District meeting March 16 to present a growing idea. They’d like to see the community garden put back in behind the community center.

The garden was abandoned over recent years because of a lack of community involvement. It will take more volunteers than have dug in in the past to get this operation off the ground — or, rather, in the ground. Add a comment

Launched in 2011, the Chrysalis Development Program for Women begins its fifth year in Plumas County in April 2015. The program is made available by Plumas Rural Services and facilitated by Dana Masih, executive coach and trainer.

PRS organizers said Chrysalis was originally designed to “bridge the gap” for those who have transitioned out of abusive situations and/or sheltered accommodation and are in a more stable situation, but who may be left without a clear idea of what to do next.

Plumas County supervisors avoided split decisions March 17, and that proved fortuitous for agenda items that required a four-fifths vote, since there were only four board members in attendance. District 1 Supervisor Terry Swofford was not present.
