Tuff Sheds for River Haven

If you haven’t been there, you have never seen anything like this! River Haven is a self-governing community of 23 formerly-homeless people. They have been living in cleverly-designed Geodesic domes that have surpassed their lifespan of five years.

We are entering a new chapter in the River Haven journey and are investing in small houses made by Tuff Sheds as a replacement for the domes. Tuff Sheds are like “Tiny Houses” and have a 30-year warranty.

Growing Works Rock Party

A hearty thank you to the volunteers who made it to our Rock Party held on March 10, 2018

Can you believe we piled eight truckloads of rocks to be used for our Demonstration Gardens? And that same day CSUCI psychology students started our first potting project with acorns that will grow into oaks for the Growing Works nursery to sell.

Suki Sir, Marketing and Fund Development, Turning Point Foundation; Ventura County Supervisor, Linda Parks; Christy Ternaishi-Martinez, CSUCI Professor of Psychology and her students pot 100 lobata acrons at Growing Works, Turning Point’s new horticultural therapy program.

Volunteers Make Growing Works a Success

All told, close to 70 volunteers helped out on a drizzly Saturday and to us, they are Rock Stars! They jump-started the Growing Works nursery that will soon bring jobs for people with mental illness, thank you to the non-profit Turning Point Foundation.
