Tom Perkins

Tom Perkins was born the son of a white chicken farmer (no, really, his parents raised 600 white chickens on a farm in Southern California)! With a huge vegetable garden and that much chicken manure around, it was hard not to learn the value of good garden soil.  His mother was an avid organic gardener and taught him from an early age to keep everything simple, clean and natural.  She even had him making 5 gallon buckets of tea with homemade compost to use on their tomato plants.  By age 10 he was in charge of the family's massive vegetable garden and was allowed to sell whatever he grew beyond what the family could eat. (This also gave him his first lesson in entrepreneurship.)

At age 18, he moved to the island of Kauai to attend courses at the National Tropical Botanical Garden where he learned the more technical aspects of the horticulture field and helped manage the extensive organic garden at the facility.

Tom has been involved in the lawn & garden field for many years, working with companies that make organic products and now as the National Sales Manager for Flexrake is helping to create better tools for gardeners everywhere.

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Canoga Park Women's Club,

7401 Jordan Avenue at the corner of Valerio and Jordan, 2 blocks east of Topanga Canyon Blvd, between Sherman Way

and Saticoy St.
 Refreshments, beginning at 7:00 pm provides an opportunity for all to socialize. At 7:30 pm a brief business

meeting is convened, followed by the evening's program.

Members and visitors are welcome.
